Join Perspective Host, Mindy Heusel, as she interviews Ballet Quad Cities Artistic Director Courtney Lyon and Artistic Advisor Joe Chonto about their work on BQC's upcoming presentation of Our Will to Live.

Mindy started at WVIK on the evening shift, one night a week, while still a student at Augustana College. Not long after, the station began overnight service and she took on the graveyard shift for a full six nights. In 1985, she moved to days and began her long tenure as host of Perspective, WVIK's afternoon classical music program. Under her direction, the program has developed into a show focused on exploring new music from living composers, not just from orchestra halls but including Broadway and film music.
