The News & Advance recently featured the work of R-MWC faculty member, Randall Speer.

On March 19, the newspaper profiled Speer’s one-act opera, “The Three Hermits,” at Court Street United Methodist Church in Lynchburg. The event featured RMWC faculty Marcia Thom, soprano, Jeanne Mundy, violin, and Ralph Jaxtheimer, cello. Other faculty members from Liberty University, Lynchburg College and Sweet Briar College as well others from the community also participated.

The opera, the Mid-Atlantic premier, is a beautiful tale of prayer and humility by Michael Dennis Browne. It is based on a short story by Leo Tolstoy.
