Diane Rehm

THE FREDERICK SPEAKER SERIES

A Conversation with DIANE REHM

Introduced and interviewed by her friend and fellow journalist Knight Kiplinger, with Q&A from the audience.

In 1979, Diane Rehm took over as host of WAMU’s mid-day program, Kaleidoscope, and in 1984, the name was changed to The Diane Rehm Show. In all the ensuing years, Rehm has offered listeners thoughtful and lively conversations on an array of topics with many of the most distinguished people of our time. In 2010, The Diane Rehm Show won a Shorty Award in the news category. Also in 2010, Rehm won a coveted George Foster Personal Peabody Award in honor of her more than 30 years in public broadcasting.

Rehm’s show has grown from a small local morning call-in show to one of public broadcasting’s most-listened-to programs with more than 2.6 million listeners across the country. Diane’s guests include many of the nation’s top news makers, journalists and authors. Guests include former president Bill Clinton, General Tommy Franks, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Julie Andrews and Toni Morrison. The National Journal calls Rehm “the class act of the talk radio world.” The Diane Rehm Show is distributed by National Public RadioNPR Worldwide, and SIRIUS satellite radio.

During Rehm’s speaking engagement with the Frederick Speaker Series, she will be joined on stage by Journalist Knight Kiplinger, Editor-in-Chief and President of Kiplinger Washington Editors, publishers of Kiplinger’s Personal Finance and Kiplinger.com. He will both host the evening and interview Rehm from the stage.

Knight Kiplinger joined Kiplinger in 1983, after 13 years in daily newspaper journalism, the last six as Washington bureau chief of the Ottaway Newspapers division of Dow Jones. A frequent speaker before business audiences, he has appeared on NPR, CNN, Fox and CNBC, among other networks. He oversees the weekly Kiplinger Letter and writes the Money & Ethics and My Point of View columns in Kiplinger’s Personal Finance. He majored in government at Cornell University and did graduate study in international economics at Princeton’s Woodrow Wilson School.

A separately ticketed meet-and-greet reception will take place immediately following the event. Reception tickets are an additional $75, and 100% of the proceeds from the reception will benefit children’s programs at Frederick County Public Libraries.

CINDERELLA

MD Regional Ballet

Maryland Regional Ballet – CINDERELLA

Composer Sergei Prokofiev based “Cinderella” on the Russian version of the fairy tale, where the title character is tormented by her stepsisters and her stepmother and is living a life of drudgery. The family receives an invitation to the Prince’s ball one day, with Cinderella excluded. Her fairy godmother appears, however, and prepares her for the ball with the help of the season fairies, who give her magical gifts of shoes, a cloak, coat and tiara. Cinderella is sent to the ball, where she meets the Prince and falls in love.

Kristi Sharrer-Holland, president of Maryland Regional Ballet, said the organization’s first production of “Cinderella” in Frederick was in 1993, and the show rotates every three years, along with “Swan Lake” and “Sleeping Beauty.”

“The score is absolutely magnificent and haunting,” she said of why the show is so special. “It conjures up the true sadness that Cinderella must have felt at her station in life.”

BUYING ONLINE VS. BUYING IN-PERSON

ONLINE:   Due to the high demand of ticket sales for these performances on their on-sale date, our ticketing software company (VENDINI) enacts a “crowd control” system.  Once there is a high enough demand, this policy will place you essentially in a line and will inform you of how many patrons are in front of you online.  If you attempt to back out of the transaction you are in, this policy will then move you to the back of the line.  Please remain patient – no patron can move any faster than what the system will allow. Also, given the high demand, you may not be offered a “pick your own seat” option.  This option is only valid online when the sales demand is below a certain level of demand.  The system will offer you the best seating available (i.e. closest to the stage) for the quantity you have requested.

IN-PERSON:   Please make certain you know many seats you require for each show prior to approaching the counter.  We CANNOT perform exchanges that morning.  We also ask that you do not use cell phones in line while waiting to make your purchase.  You may NOT ask the box office staff for ticket purchases made online to be printed and picked up on that Saturday – due to the high volume of sales on that date, we ask that you wait until the following Tuesday to pick up these tickets.  Seating availability goes very quickly because online sales are happening at the same time as sales at the box office.

We will NOT be accepting phone orders until Tuesday morning.

Please call the Box Office for any special needs you may have, or if you are experiencing problems with your online purchases.  301-600-2828
