Joe Goodkin In Concert, “Homer’s Odyssey: A Folk Opera”

On Monday, October 17, 2016 at 7:00 PM (Simons Center for the Arts, Room 309) Classics will sponsor Joe Goodkin performing his Folk Opera, Homer’s Odyssey. Part lecture, musical performance, and interactive discussion, the centerpiece of Joe’s program is a 30 minute continuous performance of 24 original songs with lyrics inspired by Odysseus’ famous exploits. Drawing on his years of writing and recording original rock music and his Bachelor’s Degree in Classics/Ancient Greek from the University of Wisconsin-Madison, Joe’s performance represents in a contemporary musical mode both the abridged plot and the performance circumstances of Homer’s original oral composition of The Odyssey. The concert is free and open to the public. For further information, see
