Faith in Music
From the Blues to Beyoncé
March 13 through May 19, 2017
Professor Tom Beaudoin, PhD
This free, public, online course explores the spiritual significance of popular music through a theological study of eight influential artists: Robert Johnson, Rosetta Tharpe, Elvis Presley, George Harrison, Carlos Santana, Lauryn Hill, Björk, and Beyoncé. The emphasis will be on what we can learn from this rich history of "faith in music" for a deeper experience of music in everyday life. This course is a cooperative venture between GSRRE and WFUV (90.7 FM).
Please note, registration will close March 23, 2017
