Come join us as acclaimed folk musician Joe Goodkin visits Valencia virtually -- and shares his musical tribute to soldiers, those from ancient wars to current wars.

This concert will feature the original songs of Goodkin, who will perform works based on themes from The Trojan War stories of Homer's Iliad.  Goodkin is a compelling performer who works with veterans, many of whom are struggling with PTSD, and helps them heal through exploring similar issues apparent in the ancient epics. 

While modern soldiers seek healing through therapy, ancient veterans sought catharsis through theater and epic poetry. 

Join the post-concert discussion with Goodkin, Valencia humaniites professor George Brooks and Valencia professor Sean Lake, who has studied the connections between ancient and modern veterans.

 

(The concert will be held on Zoom. The meeting ID is 931 6349 1479. The password is 189824.)
