Osher at Johns Hopkins steps back into the 19th century

An afternoon of 19th-century music and dance will honor and recognize the anniversary of the War of 1812 and the Civil War sesquicentennial while celebrating the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Johns Hopkins University.

The institute was created in 1986 as the Evergreen Society with a mission to enhance the leisure time of semi-retired and retired individuals. Osher, a membership community, offers an array of noncredit courses, lectures and activities, along with opportunities for social interaction, during fall and spring semesters. The program is offered in Baltimore and Columbia, Md.

The celebration takes place from 2 to 4 p.m. on Sunday, June 10, in Homewood’s Shriver Hall; a reception follows. For information, go to or call 301-294-7058.
