ABOUT THE NEWSEUM
The Newseum, headquartered in Washington, D.C., promotes, explains and defends free expression and, the five freedoms of the First Amendment: religion, speech, press, assembly and petition.
Since opening in 2008, more than 7 million have visited its modern building located on historic Pennsylvania Avenue between the United States Capitol and the White House. The Newseum’s seven levels of interactive exhibits include 15 galleries and 15 theaters. Among the most memorable exhibits are the 9/11 Gallery Sponsored by Comcast, featuring the broadcast antennae from the top of the World Trade Center; the Berlin Wall Gallery, whose eight concrete sections are one of the largest pieces of the original wall outside Germany; and the Pulitzer Prize Photographs Gallery, which features photographs from every Pulitzer Prize-winning entry dating back to 1942. In 2016, TripAdvisor users rated the Newseum as a “Traveler’s Choice Top 25 Museum in the U.S.”
Considered one of the most interactive museums in the world, the Newseum experience also traces the evolution of electronic communication from the birth of radio, to the technologies of the present and the future.
The Newseum reaches millions of students through its robust offering of on-site classes and workshops that meet national standards of learning. NewseumED, a free online learning platform for teachers and students, demonstrates the Newseum’s commitment to reach all who wish to better understand the five freedoms of the First Amendment and its relationship to learning and teaching history, media literacy and civics.
The Newseum Institute explores the challenges confronting freedom around the world with a variety of initiatives, including its First Amendment Center, which serves as a forum for the study and debate of free expression issues, and the Religious Freedom Center, which focuses on educating the American public about religious liberty and the First Amendment.
The Newseum and the Newseum Institute regularly host compelling programs that seek to generate solutions to some of the most pressing national and international challenges of the day. By embracing its role as a neutral forum committed to fostering open, nuanced discussions, the Newseum and the Newseum Institute engage in the central debates of our time, including the future of investigative journalism, the tensions between national security and privacy, and the role of religious freedom.
Featuring dramatic vistas of Washington, D.C., the Newseum has become one of the city’s most sought-after venues for conferences, weddings, movie premieres and special events. Two state-of-the-art television studios host programs of all kinds, which are broadcast around the world each week.
Exercising, defending and promoting freedom is crucial to protecting our way of life. The Newseum’s board, staff, volunteers, donors and corporate partners are working together to make sure the freedoms of the First Amendment remain strong and protected, both today and for future generations.
UCM NEWS RELEASE:

UCM’s Department of Music and the Performing Arts Series present classical guitarist Zane Forshee in concert Thursday, March 30, 7:30pm in Hart Recital Hall on the UCM campus.
Described as “…one of his generation’s finest guitarists,” (Fingerstyle Guitar Magazine), Forshee is active both as a soloist and chamber musician. Recent concert engagements have taken him across North America, Europe, and Asia, where his live performances have been noted for possessing “a beautiful ever-flow that held the audience captivated” (Retriever Weekly).
Raised in St. Louis, Zane’s exposure to various forms of music, both classical and popular, inspired his interest in developing diverse programs for the guitar. His broad musical range and openness to collaboration has led him to work with an array of distinct artists from Opus 1 Contemporary Dance Company to composers: David Revill, Luke Bedford, Gene Koshinski, and Benjamin Verdery.
Zane holds a Doctor of Musical Arts Degree, Master of Music Degree, and Graduate Performance Diploma from the Peabody Conservatory of Music of the Johns Hopkins University, where he serves as the Chair of the Guitar and Harp Department. He also serves on the faculty of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County and is in residence at the Performing Arts Institute Summer Music Festival in Pennsylvania.
Zane’s 3-day residency on campus includes masterclasses and seminars, culminating in the concert Thursday the 30th.
Tickets for the concert will be available starting Monday, March 27, 9am-Noon at the Central Tickets Box Office, Administration 100, and one hour prior to showtime at the venue, or by calling 660-543-8888. Tickets and information are available anytime online at ucmpas.com.

ABOUT THE PROJECT
A NOTE FROM ZANE FORSHEE: Happy Valentine’s Day! As we celebrate this day of love, hope, and at times longing, I want to share with you a new recording I’ve made that beautifully captures all of these elements by composer Judah Adashi. You can download my arrangement of his piece, my heart comes undone, for solo electric guitar by signing up for my email updates on the right sidebar of my website. The recording will be delivered to your inbox for download.
Progress is never a straight line:
A little over a year ago, I contacted my friend and colleague at Peabody, Judah Adashi, about a piece he’d recently written: my heart comes undone. I was familiar with the string ensemble version of this work that was commissioned and premiered by the Peabody Preparatory Strings Department and had become acquainted with the version he made for solo cello and loop pedal that was premiered and recorded by Lavena Johanson.
Title (all lower case): my heart comes undone (ISRC # US7DZ1700700)
Composer: Judah Adashi
Artist: Zane Forshee (electric guitar and loop pedal)
