We’re delighted to announce Border CrosSing as winner of the 2017 Knight Arts Challenge!
Artistic Director Ahmed Anzaldua & Development Director Jack Vishneski were on hand at the James J Hill Library on Wednesday, October 4 to accept the award and meet the other winners.
With the Knight Foundation‘s $5000 grant, we can afford a fully professional orchestra for El Mesias, where we will perform Handel’s Messiah interspersed with music by his Latin American contemporaries: Ignacio de Jerusalem and Manuel de Sumaya. It will be a true integration of historically-segregated composers, all of whom deserve performances by the best artists, and an audience of every color, tongue and creed.
However, we MUST match that $5000 in donations to realize the award in full. Willing to pitch in?
Either way, see you at the concerts!
