PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION

Ami Vitale - Photojournalist
Rhinos, Rickshaws and Revolutions


Experience our world through the eyes of an award-winning photographer whose career has brought her face-to-face not just with violence and conflict, but also with surreal beauty and the enduring power of the human spirit. Ami Vitale’s work has taken her to more than 90 countries. She’s lived in mud huts and war zones, contracted malaria, and donned a panda suit—all in keeping with her philosophy of “living the story.”

Early in her career, her focus was on conflict, such as the war in Kosovo, and the border dispute between India and Pakistan. Her first National Geographic story documented the last rickshaws in Kolkata, India. More recently, she has turned her lens to wildlife stories, including efforts to reintroduce white rhinos and pandas to the wild. Her coverage of Kenya’s northern white rhinos, and the indigenous communities working to protect them, earned her World Press Photo recognition in 2015.

Vitale’s career has taught her that stories about nature and wildlife are also stories about people—and that, at the same time, “you can’t talk about humanity without talking about nature.” She’ll share her personal odyssey, told through the images and adventures that have transformed her into a celebrated global photojournalist.

PERFORMANCE DESCRIPTION
Classical MPR is excited to announce the Showcase Artists for the ninth annual Minnesota Varsity classical music showcase for instrumentalists, vocalists and composers, which will be held on Saturday, May 11 at 3 p.m. at Ted Mann Concert Hall.


Admission is FREE but reservations are required.


The following performers and composers have been selected from
across the state to take part in the live showcase concert:

Minnesota Varsity 2019 Showcase Artists
• Elizabeth Kleiber, flute, Hudson, Wisconsin
• Lauren Senden, voice, North Mankato, Minnesota
• Emma Taggart, piano, Blaine, Minnesota
• Shuen Wu, piano, Woodbury, Minnesota

Showcase Artist by Audience Vote
• Beatrice Grant, piano, Waconia, Minnesota

Minnesota Varsity 2019 Showcase Composers selected by ACF
• Daniel Fleury, Rochester
• Ian Handeland, Dayton

To participate in Minnesota Varsity, musicians ages 14-18 from around the region were asked to submit a recording of themselves performing. Student composers (also ages 14-18) were invited to submit an original score for violin, cello and piano or any solo or combination of those instruments. For the seventh year, American Composers Forum (ACF) is a partner with MPR in the composition category.

The student musicians received a professional recording session at MPR’s studios and their music was broadcast on Classical MPR in March. The Featured Composers participated in a composer workshop with musicians Irina Stene, piano, Hocheol Shin, cello, Mary Alice Hutton, violin, and mentor Edie Hill at American Composer Forum’s headquarters at the Landmark Center. Over the past month, the public has participated in an online Audience Vote at classicalmpr.org and chose one of the Showcase Artists. ACF selected two Showcase Composers in March.

TUNE IN: Classical MPR can be heard in the Twin Cities on KSJN 99.5 FM. A complete list of Classical MPR stations can be accessed online: go to classicalmpr.org and click on "stations.” The concert will also be streamed live at classicalmpr.org.
