Presented by Stacen Goldman
In the early fall of 2017, while developing the upcoming World War I exhibition, FHC Curator Stacen Goldman discovered the unfinished, unpublished manuscript of Gordon Ware, a Framingham resident and volunteer ambulance driver during the Great War. Both funny and poignant, Ware’s writing offers insight into service on World War I’s “Forgotten Front” in the Balkans—a place where virtually no American service men set foot. Join Stacen as she discusses finding Ware’s manuscript in the FHC Collections, the impact it had on developing the World War I exhibition, and Gordon’s story itself. Her talk will be presented alongside exclusive photographs and readings from this unfinished work of Framingham’s own “Lost Generation” voice.

Graybil has performed as a recitalist, concerto soloist and chamber musician throughout North America and Europe. Banerdt is the assistant concertmaster with the Cape Symphony, on the violin faculty at Bloomingdale School of Music and a violinist for the Ulysses String Quartet in New York City. Together, they represent a small but mighty group of emerging musicians who are eager to keep classical music relevant — particularly to young ears. “Music represents who someone is, and that’s sort of the central question for a young person exploring different aspects of their identity,” Banerdt says. “Music is about personal expression, and that’s something we all share.” They will be performing works by Chopin, de Falla, Saint Saens and Prokofiev.
Doors open at 2:30pm.
The series is sponsored in part by Roche Brothers Supermarkets, Brookdale Cushing Park, Metro Credit Union, St. Mary’s Credit Union and Friends of the Framingham Library.
