The Elizabethan lute songs will be performed by singer and KSUI on-air personality Nancy Hagen with lutenist Oleg Timofeyev. Timofeyev will also play gypsy music and talk about his experiences living in Russia last year.

Poetry of love and loss will be read by Marvin Bell, the poet-in-residence on “Know the Score.”. The subjects of love and virtue will be discussed with Jay Semel, director of the Oberman Center for Advanced Studies at the UI, and Russell Valentino, UI associate professor of Russian.
