Lunch and Learn: Tales from a Piano Bench and a Bicycle Seat: The Art of Listening in a Fractured World
Benedictine Institute, Collegeville Institute
Invoking the first words of The Rule of St. Benedict, “Listen carefully,” Maurer shares how the Benedictine value of listening has shaped his life and spurred him to action. Whether on a bicycle seat or a piano bench, George’s artistic curiosity and travels intersect in the art he creates. He draws together his musical knowledge with cultural explorations, creating a diversity of listening experiences that pull deeply at the ears of his heart.
