Yearning to Breathe Free Concert
Bring your lawn chairs, bring your blankets: The Rozsa Center for the Performing Arts is proud to present “Yearning to Breathe Free,” a free outdoor concert put on by Michael Christianson, Michigan Tech’s Director of Bands, with performances by the Superior Wind Symphony, in which they will celebrate the music of great composers who emigrated to the United States. Come spend a beautiful fall evening full of band music on Sunday, September 24th, 7:00 PM, on the Rozsa/Walker lawn. If it rains, the show will be inside, in the Rozsa Center.
According to Christainson, “Many of the great composers of iconic American band music came to the United States from overseas. They were drawn by the words of Emma Lazarus, inscribed in 1883 on the base of the Statue of Liberty:
“Give me your tired, your poor,
Your huddled masses yearning to breathe free,
The wretched refuse of your teeming shore.
Send these, the homeless, tempest-tost to me,
I lift my lamp beside the golden door!”
We will perform mostly original works for winds by great composers who were immigrants to the US: Irving Berlin, Antonin Dvorak, Sergei Prokofiev, Darius Milhaud, Paul Hindemith, Igor Stravinsky, Percy Grainger, Chen Yi, Tania Leon , plus a Sousa march dedicated to his overseas friends! Bring your blanket, your dinner, and spread out on the lawn as you enjoy a classic Band moment with Michigan Tech’s Superior Wind Symphony! Concert starts at 7:00PM, sunset starts at 8:01.”

Artist Exhibit at the Rozsa
Who owns the wind? The leaves on the trees? When a paper company cuts down a 75-year-old tree, or a landowner clears brush for a better view of the lake, how is an entire ecosystem affected? What ethical, cultural, and social questions are raised? Artist Katie Hargrave, a professor of art at the University of Tennessee, Chattanooga, who holds degrees in Painting, Intermedia, and Cultural Production, explores these questions in her exhibition, It’s nothing personal (space), opening at the Rozsa Center’s gallery A-Space, on Friday, September 22. “It’s nothing personal (space)” is an exploration of the competing ideas of ownership and stewardship as they relate to public and private land, trees and deserts, and individual and corporate voices. Inspired by a road trip to the Malheur Wildlife Refuge, the site of militia protests during the winter of 2016, the exhibition includes fiber, audio, video, and drawings The September 22 opening includes a reception with the artist from 5:00 PM – 6:30 PM. Hargrave will discuss her work at 5:30 PM. The reception and exhibit are free and open to the public, and the show will remain open through November 11. Gallery hours are M – F 8:00 AM – 8:00 PM, and Saturdays from 1:00 PM – 8:00 PM.
Katie Hargrave, who was born in 1985 in Chicago and now resides in Chattanooga, TN, received a BFA from the University of Illinois, an MFA in Intermedia and Drawing from the University of Iowa, and an MA in museum studies and anthropology from Brandeis University. Her work has been shown at DIY spaces, commercial galleries, non-profits, and festivals, including the Manifesta Biennial in Murcia, Spain where she worked with activists to design bilingual tools for direct action; SPACES gallery in Cleveland, where she applied the framework of forest succession to city planning, and the Floating Library, a zine collection on a boat in the Minneapolis lakes. Hargrave is a member of the collaborative groups “The Think Tank that has yet to be named” and “Like Riding a Bicycle.” For more information about Hargrave, please visit her website at http://www.katiehargrave.us/
