Whitcomb Lee Conservatory will echo with Latin when Mark Miner, professional reciter of classical literature, brings portions of Vergil's Aeneid to the stage on Thursday, October 23, 2008, at 7:30 p.m.

The public is invited to this free presentation.

Miner will present portions of the Aeneid, with Latin and English subtexts projected on a screen. Miner's recitations will be preceded by readings in English from Stanley Lombardo's translation. Zach Kloppenborg, a Doane theatre major, will read.    

The Aeneid follows the legend of Aeneas from the last day of Troy up to Aeneas' victory and the fusion of Trojans and Latins into one people.

Miner is a professional reader specializing in Latin and Greek literature. His credits include recordings for the popular Athenaze Greek text, online audio for Wheelock's Latin, and numerous performances throughout North America.

Miner recently performed at Colorado College. He travels across the country presenting from memory original Greek and Latin pieces. His presentation is done in full costume.
