Six Composers and Their Lyricists: The Birth of The American Musical

The Bristal Better U February 2014 Lecture was titled “Six Composers and Their Lyricists: The Birth of The American Musical.” Our presenter was James Kolb, Professor of Drama and Dance at Hofstra University for the past 28 years. Prior to coming to Hofstra, Professor Kolb taught for 15 years at another university.

Developed in conjunction with Hofstra University Continuing Education, The Bristal Better U is an exciting new lifelong learning and personal enrichment program that we offer here at The Bristal. This innovative distance learning program is completely voluntary, it is structured in flexible and easily accessible ways, and as the name implies, it’s a great way for our residents to continue exploring, learning and engaging in the fascinating world around them. The BBU presents lectures, discourses and other educational components of interest to residents throughout all communities of The Bristal, covering a wide range of topics of both general and specific interest.
