Saturday, March 22—St. John's College welcomes Maryland Day participants
The Friends of St. John’s College invite the community to celebrate Maryland Day at St. John’s College. Enjoy and learn about the music of the War of 1812 with Dr. David Hildebrand, a specialist in early American music, as he discusses the true birth of the “Star Spangled Banner,” written by St. John’s alumnus Francis Scott Key, Class of 1796. The event, which is free and open to the public, will be held on Saturday, March 22, at 11 a.m. in the Francis Scott Key Auditorium. For more information: 410-626-2530
The Mitchell Gallery will be open, featuring the “Dialogues: Words and Images in Art, 1500-1924” exhibition. Edgar Allan Poe is just one of the subjects in this exhibition that illustrates the interplay between images and text in art.
