It wasn’t until my study of music theory in school that I began to understand math as a language expressing more than numbers on a page. Math can be heard in intervals and modes, and seen in fractals, and the framing of art through phenomena like the rule of thirds. Our cover artist spent his life developing unified theories of math, music, and art, and teaching people including George Gershwin and Lawrence Berk. Of course, Billie Holiday (p. 40), or Edward Van Halen (p.10) never had much training in the math of music, they just followed their ear and expressed the song of their heart.

In the field of community education, I was taught that if offerings are diverse and intellectually stimulating, registrations will follow and finances will be almost a secondary concern. The last eight months have challenged that theory, but I still believe that the core of teaching rings true. While the rhythm of our world is still a bit uneven, the inspiration, and offerings at LCE remain as strong and vibrant as ever. We thank you for your support and we look forward to seeing you on Zoom in 2021! — Craig Hall, Director
