World Cinema: Forbidden Voices: How to Start a Revolution with a Computer
Location: 107 Devlin Hall 107

Join us for a 2013 Tallgrass Film Festival encore screening: "Forbidden Voices: How to Start a Revolution with a Computer."

Their voices are suppressed, prohibited and censored. But fearless, and now world-famous, female bloggers in Cuba, China and Iran shake the foundations of the state information monopoly, putting them at great risk. Tracing each woman's use of social media to denounce and combat violations of human rights and free speech in her home country, the documentary attests to the Internet's potential for building international awareness and political pressure.

Directed by Barbara Miller, Switzerland, 2012, 96 minutes.

Admission is free.

WSU Symphony Orchestra with Julie Bees, Piano
Location: Duerksen Fine Arts Center, Miller Concert Hall

Faculty artist Julie Bees performs the Piano Concerto No. 2 in Bb Major by Johannes Brahms with the WSU Symphony Orchestra. A monumental work of symphonic proportions, the concerto exhibits Brahms's most familiar characteristics: intense lyricism, rhythmic invention and finely crafted structural balance. The concert also features a Hungarian masterwork of the 20th century, Zoltán Kodály's Háry János Suite. Excerpted from the 1926 comic opera, the suite incorporates folksong and popular dance tunes, orchestrated with vibrant colors and lively rhythms.

Eighty members strong, the Wichita State University Symphony Orchestra is an auditioned ensemble comprised of undergraduate and graduate students. The orchestra performed in Carnegie Hall in May 2011 and completed a concert tour of the Aragon region of Spain as invited participants in the 2008 International Youth Orchestra Festival; other notable performances include the Midwest International Band and Orchestra Clinic in Chicago and numerous appearances at the state conference of the Kansas Music Educators Association. Recent collaborations include performances with the classic rock band Kansas and the arena multimedia concert Video Games Live. The orchestra presents a minimum of three major concerts each semester, together with opera productions, oratorios and an annual concerto-aria competition. Recent repertoire spans nearly 300 years of standard orchestral literature, including Puccini's opera Suor Angelica, Beethoven's Ninth Symphony ("Choral"), Berlioz' Symphonie Fantastique, Tchaikovsky's Sixth Symphony, Stravinsky's Petrushka Ballet Suite and Dean Roush's Ars Poetica.

American pianist Julie Bees is Professor of Piano and Director of the Konrad Wolff-Ilse Bing Chamber Music Endowment Award at Wichita State University in Wichita, Kansas. She has played recital debuts in New York City at Merkin Hall, in Chicago on the Dame Myra Hess series and in Washington, D.C. at the Phillips Collection. Her recital tours of Europe include debuts in such major musical centers as Edinburgh, Glasgow, Vienna, Brussels, The Hague, Leipzig, Milan, Helsinki, Warsaw and St. Petersburg and master classes in Hungary and Finland. She has also played recitals and taught masterclasses in mainland China and in Tokyo, Japan. She performed the Ravel Concerto in G Major with the WSU Symphony Orchestra on their recent tour of Spain.
