Dec. 6: Kayleen Asbo, PhD
Beethoven: A Life of Resilience
We all love Beethoven for his majestic and exquisite music. But there’s a lot more to his story. He was a child prodigy and his father brutally forced him to develop his talent so that the little boy could support the family. Beethoven was flogged, locked in the cellar and deprived of sleep for extra hours of practice. Kayleen will tell us how Beethoven’s life was a model of courageous creativity, and an example for all of us on how to transform tragedy and heartbreak into beauty and hope.
Dr. Asbo is well-known and much beloved by the Oakmont community who have attended her many presentations via the Oakmont Lifelong Learning program.
