In addition to the concert, lead vocalist Berting Brett will present a lecture on what society learned from Karen Carpenter's death at 32 from heart failure related to her struggles with anorexia. The lecture, at 5 p.m., March 30 in the University Union's Multipurpose Room, will address eating disorders and their prevalence in our culture, their causes and treatment. The lecture is free.
