Words of Schweitzer & the Music of Bach
Join the Center on November 10 to remember and honor Dr. Albert Schweitzer, a deep thinker, an accomplished musician, a sensitive healer and a generous soul.
Commemorating the 60th anniversary of Schweitzer’s visit to America!
This original multimedia musical dramatization, written and produced by Thurston Moore, brings the importance of Schweitzer's philosophy and work to life. The 267 images shown on the screen from the beginning to the end of the 90-minute drama are a chronicle of his life from birth through his days of scholarship and intellectual quest, culminating in his actualization as a medical missionary deep in the forests of French Equatorial Africa where he founded the Lambaréné Hospital and discovered his philosophy of reverence for life.
Featuring Dr. Richard Lange as Albert Schweitzer, with live music by David Eaton, UTSA and David Heller, Trinity organists.
