The kickoff of the ElderCollege spring semester will be 1:30- 3 p.m. Feb. 26 at the Cedar Point Center at BGSU Firelands. The event will feature Steve Ball and his unique presentation on Civil War era music. The event is free and open to the public.

Ball has developed a presentation that explains why the tunes were written and what was going on in the war at the time by using all Civil War era Martin guitars. The songs are presented in a somewhat chronological order, and Ball tells the story of each song, and keeps listeners informed of the progress of the war at the same time.
