UWC-USA invites members of the community to join us for an evening performance on October 15, 2016 celebrating the 20th anniversary of the Dwan Light Sanctuary. A gift to the UWC-USA and wider communities by Virginia Dwan, the Light Sanctuary was a collaboration between artist Charles Ross, Virginia Dwan, and architect Laban Wingert. It has been a place of reflection and introspection for twenty years. The performance will feature a Bach cello suite (performed on the bass clarinet), several Balkan-style vocal quintets, a fifteenth century Arabic song, and an erhu solo.
"The Dwan Light Sanctuary has a special place in our community. It provides a space for our faculty and students to reflect and be still, or to watch and listen to inspiring performances--so important given the challenging work we are engaged in here at UWC-USA," says Victoria Mora, UWC-USA's president. "The fact that the Las Vegas and New Mexico communities can also enjoy this great work of art is a further expression of our mission. We are very grateful to Virginia Dwan for her support and encouragement over the years."
