Judaica Sound Archives at FAU Libraries to host Lecture on Composer John Zorn at Hillel

I got a nice email last week from about an upcoming lecture on John Zorn. I wish I could attend but it is, as most interesting things are, MMFH (many miles from here.) I asked Daniel if it would be recorded and made available via the internet and he didn't know but would look into it. We can hope.

Here's the press release:
