The Exchange 05.12.23: Innovation Market returns; Siouxland youth place first in young artist competition; Seeking racial justice for those imprisoned for marijuana crimes
Coming up on this week's edition of The Exchange . . .
We hear performances by the winners of the Sioux City Chamber Music Young Artist Competition held on Sunday.
Iris Liao is a 6th grader at Dakota Valley Middle School and won first place in the Junior High category. Iris played Milonga de los Ninos by Christos Tsitsaros and Impromptu in Eb Major by Franz Schubert.
The winner of the High School Division was Josiah Vos (V-ahs), a junior at Siouxland Christian School. He played Sonatine for Piano by Maurice Ravel.
We also hear about new, broad based Bachelor of Science in Music at the University of South Dakota that will allow graduates to work in many different fields. We talk with USD Dean of the College of Fine Arts Bruce Kelley.
Also, we talk with authors of new book called Waiting to Inhale about the need to decriminalize petty marijuana crimes and let those already sentenced for minor drug crimes out of prison.
And we have a preview of next week’s Sioux City Go Innovation Market. The event awards funds to local entrepreneurs to grow their businesses.
