Heritage Center Staff Spotlight

Annber Breimon, intern

Originally from Hustisford, Wisconsin, Annber is a sophomore fine and performing arts major with a concentration in theatre.  Annber has worked at Heritage Center for a year and half.  She started as an usher and technical assistant.  This past fall she started working as an office assistant and is interning this semester.  Annber enjoys working at Heritage Center because it gives her the opportunity to be creative and incorporate her fine and performing arts background into the marketing. 

Annber is a Wendt Character Scholar and helps promote compassion, integrity, and justice throughout campus and the community.  She has also been involved in nearly every fine and performing arts theatre production at UD over the last two years.  You may have seen her onstage in Memphis, Bamboozled!, Giselle, Macbeth, Noises Off, The Last Five Years, and Proof.  Currently, she is rehearsing for the upcoming production of James and the Giant Peach.  Annber is also a member of the UD Concert Choir and can’t wait to go on tour to Hawaii this May.

After graduation in December 2018, Annber plans to pursue a career in acting.  She wants to move to Atlanta because of its large film/television scene.  She plans to get an agent and begin auditioning.  Acting is her true passion, and she can’t envision herself in any other career.

The Hunts
Indie-Folk Band

Wednesday, April 12, 2017 at 7:30 p.m.
John and Alice Butler Hall

Known for their harmony-laced take on alt-folk, The Hunts are a Chesapeake, Virginia-based band of seven siblings who’ve been playing music together almost their entire lives. Twin sisters and five brothers, now ranging in age from 26 down to 17, have played theaters, festivals, and universities around the country—playing diverse instruments like mandolin, piano, ukulele, banjo, and drums. Inspired by shared memories, The Hunts create songs that capture heartache and wonder with a wide-eyed but wistful elegance. The Hunts’ original songs tap into each member’s unique strengths while remaining intensely collaborative. While getting seven strong-minded siblings to agree on every last note and lyric can sometimes be chaotic, The Hunts insist that the synergy born from that chaos is what makes the band’s music so infectious.

A free CyberCafé Knapp Stage Pre-Show Concert featuring Driftless Sisters accompanies this performance from 6:00-7:00 p.m.  Driftless Sisters are an indie folk duo from the driftless hills of Galena, IL.

A free fiddle workshop with Jessica Hunt Kinstler will be held on Tuesday, April 11 from 7:00-8:00 p.m.  Email trobbins@dbq.edu to RSVP or for more information.

This engagement is supported, in part, by the William P. Woodward Visiting Artist-in-Residence Endowment.

It tells the story of James Henry Trotter and his horrible aunts - and how some magic beans, a peach tree, and a collection of interesting insects conspire to change his life. Adapted into a musical, the story comes to life with innovative puppetry, a spunky soundtrack, and bright characters that will have you on the edge of your seat.

On Monday, May 1, 700 students ranging from pre-k to 5th grade will attend the SchoolBus performance of James and the Giant Peach.  Schools in attendance will be Belmont Community Schools, Dyersville Elementary, St. Rose of Lima, La Salle Catholic School, St. Mary Immaculate Conception, Farley Elementary, Lincoln Elementary, Marshall Elementary, Anna B.

Only Line: Pencil and Ink by Alan Garfield and Steve Ziegler

This exhibit features recent work by two Midwestern artists, Alan Garfield (Dubuque) and Steve Ziegler (Madison), who actively decide only to use pencil and ink.  Decidedly not minimalists.  Garfield travels with students and uses charcoal because he's on the move constantly.  Ziegler wanders around his farm and uses nature as a jumping off point for his ink drawings.

In its 13th year, this student show focuses on the creative ideas of computer graphics students at UD.  While these students work around the clock to create logos, websites, printed materials, and brochures in classes, this exhibit allows the students' creative juices to flow.  Every CGIM major is required to submit one fine arts work.  Monetary awards from graduates of the CGIM program will be presented, as well as the Best of Show, which will be purchased for the University's permanent collection.  This show is part of APEX, the annual student excellence celebration.

Reception: April 25 | 3-4:00 p.m., part of APEX: Celebration of Student Scholarship and Leadership
