The 2010 Carlos Perez-Mesa lecture, "Defying the Odds: It Goes Far Beyond Hope," will be delivered through a multimedia presentation by guitarist and recording artist Jason Crigler and his sister, Marjorie Crigler. The Criglers will share an inspirational story of recovery following Jason's brain hemorrhage during a concert in 2004, which is the subject of the acclaimed documentary Life. Support. Music.
