AWARD-WINNING VOCALIST PRESENTS MASTERCLASS AT VITERBO OCT. 15

LA CROSSE, Wis. ? On Tuesday, Oct. 15, Viterbo University will present a vocal jazz masterclass with guest artist Ruth MacKenzie, from the Minnesota Dance Theatre, at noon in the Fine Arts Center Recital Hall.

MacKenzie is a singer, writer, and composer who has been a member of the Twin Cities Arts Community for many years. She has received many awards for her work, including, in New York, a Jonathan Larsen Award for Excellence, a 1997 Artist of Note by the Twin Cities’ Star Tribune, Artist of the Year in 1997 by City Pages, and a McKnight Fellowship in Music Performance. MacKenzie is in La Crosse to perform as a vocalist with the Minnesota Dance Theatre’s Rumblings, part of the Viterbo University NexStar series of performances.
