Classical Guitarist
Peter Fletcher

Thursday, April 28 at 6:30 PM

On Thursday, April 28 at 6:30 pm, Classical Guitarist Peter Fletcher will perform at the Frank L. Weyenberg Library as part of the 2016 Fine Arts series. Peter Fletcher began to study the classical guitar at the age of seven. In December of 1983, he made his formal debut at the age of fifteen under the auspices of The Brasstown Concert Association in North Carolina. Fletcher furthered his studies in Master Classes with David Leisner, Oscar Ghiglia and Pepe Romero. Fletcher believes in carrying on the Segovia tradition of expanding the comparatively small classical guitar repertoire by transcribing from other instruments and by commissioning new music.

For more about Peter Fletcher, including clips of his work, please visit his web site.

Regular library services will be suspended at 6:00 on Thursday, April 28 for this special event. No registration is required for this free program and all are welcome to attend. Fine Art Series performances are made possible due to the generosity of the Weyenberg Public Library Foundation.

Old Abe and Black Hats:
Wisconsin in the Civil War
Wednesday, May 11 at 6:00 PM

Award-winning journalist Lance J. Herdegen will be at the Weyenberg Library on Wednesday, May 11 at 6:00 PM. Wisconsin was just twelve years into statehood when the nation drifted into a great Civil War, but its citizens quickly answered the call to restore the Union. Over the next four years, the state sent soldiers to all parts of the war front, while folks back home produced foodstuffs and raw materials to support the war effort. It is a story often overlooked and forgotten. Speaker Lance J. Herdegen will tell you of Wisconsin soldiers known for their tall black hats, a famous war eagle named Old Abe, the Wisconsin Angel and a three-term governor who lost his arm at Gettysburg.

Award-winning journalist Lance J. Herdegen is the former director of the Institute of Civil War Studies at Carroll University. He previously worked as a reporter and editor for the United Press International (UPI) news service covering national politics and civil rights and presently works as historical consultant for the Civil War Museum of the Upper Middle West. Herdegen is regarded as the authority on the Iron Brigade. His many book credits include Those Damned Black Hats!: The Iron Brigade in the Gettysburg Campaign; Four Years with the Iron Brigade: The Civil War Journal of William R. Ray, Seventh Wisconsin Volunteers; The Men Stood Like Iron: How the Iron Brigade Won its Name and In the Bloody Railroad Cut at Gettysburg.
