Full year program
For 5 years now the Wright Opera House has sponsored a Fall Continuing Education Class. These have been very well received. Moreover, there is an important community need for more remote diversions in these times when events are limited. With these in mind, the Wright is pleased to announce that for 2021 we will expand this series to a full year program: The WrightEd Lecture Series.
We anticipate having 3 fascinating new classes for the winter and spring semesters. One will start in January, one in February, and the third in April. The speakers will all be local residents who have a passion for their topics and would like to share that with the community. The Program will take a break over the usually busy (for you and for the Wright) summer season. It will then resume in the fall with an additional 1 or 2 classes. You may select any or all of the classes you would like to participate in. The classes will all be via Zoom and will follow a similar format used for this fall’s class.
All class fees will go directly to the Wright to support their community efforts.
The details are still in the early planning stage. As they are finalized, we will keep all informed as to class title with an abstract, the presenter, fee structure, and exact dates and times via both our website and the weekly Tuesday morning newsletter.
We look forward to having you join us for this exciting new series as we expand our educational opportunities for the entire community, wherever you are located.
