With his 12-string guitar, Odds Bodkin visits three 9th grade classes at Lawrence Academy prior to his evening performance of The Odyssey: Belly of the Beast. He demonstrates the musical leitmotifs students will hear, and how they convey emotions, and how Homer recited his epics using voices and music on the lyre. Imagination’s link to memory as a cognitive skill comes next. He’ll then delve into life in the Bronze Age and how the ancient Greeks viewed life, death and the mysteries of nature.
Workshop sessions are at 12 noon, 1 p.m. and 2 p.m.
