“I chose Curry because I really enjoyed the campus feel, I felt safe there. I also looked at the students and I saw me. I felt like I could relate to them. I felt comfortable and that was really important-just fitting in.”

The Keighton Fund of Curry College Presents: 'The Story of Civil War America in Song'
April 14, 2014
Hafer, Parents' Lounge
The Keighton Fund will proudly present its spring 2014 performance, The Story of Civil War America in Song on Monday, April 14. The event starts at 7:00 p.m. and will be held in the Parents' Lounge of the Hafer Academic Building. A reception will follow.
Soprano Beth Canterbury and Pianist Matthew Larson, Ph.D. will perform a variety of works tracing the arc of the Civil War, from secession to surrender. The works include songs detailing the Union and Confederate perspectives as well as popular African-American spirituals. This musical celebration is free and open to the public, however, seating is limited.
The Keighton Fund was established in 1990 by the Pines Bridge Foundation and named for Dr. Robert L. Keighton, an active and dedicated Professor of Politics and History who has been teaching at Curry College for more than 45 years. The purpose of the fund is "to provide lectures and performances at Curry College by individuals who are prominent in the fields of academics, arts, sciences and public service."
