Music, and the lyrics connected with it, can express many emotions, moods, and spiritual depths and heights. One part of this session will look at what creates spirituality in music and it will also look at how varied music we define as spiritual can be, from towering peaks of Western classical music to hymns, spirituals, Broadway musicals, rock songs and protest music, including the Gospel according to Peter, Paul, and Mary. This session will combine talk, analysis, music, audience participation, and a live performance by singer-songwriter and itinerant biotechnologist Glenn Cornett. Caveat emptor: Mr. Cornett holds strong to the conviction that a culture that cannot laugh at itself has not achieved a proper level of maturity.
