Yousuf Karsh: The Hero of A Thousand Faces Through Words and Music

Currently showing through November 3rd 2010 at the USC Fisher Museum of Art is 'Regarding Heroes', an exhibition celebrating Karsh, "one of our greatest portrait photographers, whose portrait subjects include such political, social and literary figures as Nelson Mandela, Audrey Hepburn, Winston Churchill and Robert Frost."

If you're in LA on September 30th, at 7.30 pm pianist Victoria Kirsch will be joined by two fellow USC alumni, soprano Shana Blake Hill and bass-baritone Cedric Berry, for a program of vocal and instrumental music inspired by the portrait subjects featured in the exhibition. Actor Jamieson K. Price will read excerpts from Karsh's reminiscences of his photography sessions, revealing fascinating and sometimes surprising details about the iconic figures he photographed.
