Angela BrownCOLUMBUS, MS – The Columbus Arts Council is pleased to announce their 2013 Concert and Artist Series performance “Arias, Arts Songs and Spirituals—An Evening with International Opera Singer, Angela Brown.”  This very special concert takes place at 7 pm, Friday, February 8, 2013 in Whitfield Hall’s Rent Auditorium on the campus of Mississippi University for Women, Columbus, Mississippi.

Ms. Brown has declared herself “a trailblazer on a mission to bring operatic and classical vocal performance to a diverse audience.” Carrying out this mission, the Friday evening program of “Arias, Arts Songs and Spirituals” includes classic opera arias to more contemporary pieces such as a song cycle written especially for her by American composer Richard Danielpour and celebrated author Maya Angelou.    An inspired interpreter of African -American spirituals, Ms. Brown includes several of her soul-stirring renditions of these traditional treasures.

In addition to the Friday evening concert, the noted opera singer will perform programs for school children and conduct a master vocal class for MUW students.  The master class takes place at the Connie Sills Kossen Auditorium in Poindexter Hall on the Mississippi University for Women Campus, Tuesday, February 5, 6-8 pm and is open to the public for auditing.

Internationally renowned singer Angela Brown personifies the ideal American dramatic soprano: sheer vocal power, dramatic interpretations, and a personality larger than life.   Her highly successful Metropolitan Opera debut in 2004 sparked a media excitement  from such as The New York Times: “At last an Aida!”,  The Associated Press:  “She combines a potent, dusky lower register with a striking ability to spin out soft high notes of shimmering beauty. There’s no doubt her voice is powerful enough for Verdi”, and CBS Evening News says:   “The future of opera has arrived!” Ms. Brown has also been featured on the cover of The New York Times, in national publications such as Oprah, Classical Singer, Essence, Reader’s Digest and Psychology Today, and has performed on CNN Worldwide and Garrison Keillor’s A Prairie Home Companion.

Angela Brown has carried her powerful voice and message all over the world—from Indiana to Alabama, Pennsylvania to Georgia, Michigan to California, and from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington D.C. to Canada, Germany, France, Italy, Spain, New Zeland and Africa.

The Columbus Arts Council and event sponsors --The National Endowment for the Arts, South Arts, Mississippi University for Women, Fairfield Inns and Suites and WCBI-TV-- are very proud to bring this very special event to the community. Don’t miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to experience this incredible performer.

Angela Brown takes the stage at 7 PM at Rent Auditorium on the Mississippi University for Women Campus located at 1100 College Street, Columbus on Friday, February 8, 2013.  Adult tickets are $20, children and college students with valid ID are $10 and MUW faculty, staff and students are admitted free with a valid ID. Tickets can be purchased at the Rosenzweig Arts Center, 501 Main Street in downtown Columbus, or online at www.columbus-arts.org.  Please contact the Columbus Arts Council for more information by calling 662-328-ARTS (2787) or emailing This email address is being protected from spambots.

Student NetID Password Update

MUW ITS will be implementing a new password policy for all University Student users starting Tuesday Feb. 28, at 10:00 AM. The password change will be activated/required upon your next login after the enforcement has been enabled. The change will not lock or force you out if you are actively working on your computer.

If your password already meets the above requirements, you will still have to change your password once the new policy rules are officially enforced. Changing your password before Feb. 28 should be done if you have a security reason to do so, but not in response to jumping ahead of the Password Policy change date/time. Changing your password ahead of time will not negate the requirement to change it again on Tuesday Feb. 28, at 10:00 AM.

After the new password policy has been enabled, Students will not be able to login to services (Portal, MUWnet WiFi, Office 365, Orgsync, etc…) that use NetID credentials until you change and update your password using the follow criteria.

MUW ITS will never ask for your NetID Password via email.
