Electricka A Life In The Arts - "Hello Everyone," An Appreciation of Dr. Karl Haas Open

Here, Electricka and The Muse Of Music explore the life and work of Dr. Karl Haas. Karl Haas was a distinguished classical music performer and exegetist—a presenter, interpreter, and explainer—who for decades originated a widely-syndicated and highly successful radio program on the subject of classical music.

Dr. Haas is sorely missed by those who had the good fortune to hear him and his dedicated followers will long remember him. Too bad everyone couldn't have had the same opportunity. We are grateful for his contributions.

Electricka A Life In The Arts—The Life Of Siegfried Sassoon Open

Sassoon was born September 8, 1886 in Brenchley, Kent, England, and died September 1, 1967, in Heytesbury, Wiltshire, England. He enlisted in World War I and was twice wounded seriously while serving as an officer in France. He became widely known for his antiwar poetry, such as The Old Huntsman (1917) and Counterattack (1918), and his public affirmation of pacifism, after he had won the Military Cross and while he was still in the army. His antiwar protests were at first attributed to shell shock, and he was confined for a time in a sanatorium, where he met and influenced another pacifist soldier-poet, Wilfred Owen, whose works he published after Owen was killed at the front.

Explore the life of Siegfried Sassoon.

Thus, a museum is a place sacred to the Muses, a building devoted to learning and the arts. In ancient Greece, any place devoted to learning and the arts was called a museum—a muse place! When you visit a museum, you enter a holy place, one sacred to the gods.
