First Person Radio - 10/3/2012

Please join Laura Waterman Wittstock on Wednesday, October 3, 2012 as she talks with Mankato Symphony Orchestra Music Director Kenneth Freed & David Larsen (Mdewakanton Dakota) tribal historian, educator, former tribal chairman of Lower Sioux Indian Community, and former director of American Indian Affairs at MNSU/Mankato

On Sunday, November 18th, to bring public attention to the darkest time in Minnesota history – the U.S.-Dakota War and the hangings that took place in Mankato in 1862: the largest mass execution in American history – the acclaimed 80-member Mankato Symphony Orchestra will present two powerful pieces of music that will pay tribute to this tragedy while offering a message of optimism for the future of all Minnesotans.

“To Be Certain of the Dawn” will feature two compositions – “Trail of Tears” by Michael Daugherty and “To Be Certain of the Dawn” by Stephen Paulus. The concert will take place on Sunday, November 18, 3 p.m., at Mankato West High School Auditorium.
