HIGH FREQUENCY Headlines BGSU Firelands ElderCollege Kickoff

Huron, Ohio – The kickoff of the ElderCollege spring semester is set for Wednesday, Feb. 3, from 1:30-3:30 p.m., in the Cedar Point Center at Bowling Green State University Firelands College and will feature “HIGH FREQUENCY” Flute Quartet.

Founded five years ago by the Principal Flutist of the Firelands Symphony Orchestra, Tamara Kagy, the HIGH FREQUENCY’s purpose is to provide an outlet for advanced flutists to perform the remarkable range of traditional and popular flute repertoire that is available today.  The quartet will charm the audience with selections from popular works of stage and opera, as well as Celtic thematic works by a popular composer Catherine McMichael.

With more than 150 members, ElderCollege at BGSU Firelands is designed to promote lifelong learning for adults 50 years of age and beyond from all educational and socio-economic backgrounds.  There are no academic requirements to join ElderCollege, and there are no tests or grades. Individuals simply attend for the enjoyment of learning.

Thirty-five classes are planned for the spring semester. Topics range from cybersecurity, music, history, and much more.

Individuals can enroll in ElderCollege for a fee of $70 per semester or $110 for two semesters, which entitles them to attend unlimited classes during the selected period.  Non-members can participate by paying a minimal fee per class-typically $20.
