Presented by Red Cedar Chamber Music and FilmScene

$30 public | $25 members

This multi-media extravaganza features magic lantern slides and early silent films from the Brinton Collection of early entertainment materials accompanied by chamber music. Philip Wharton has created a magical score for The Fairy of Springtime, a 1902 French film which features hand-painted color. Michael Kimber has scored Venetian Tragedy, a nine-minute drama with a surprise ending. And new to Red Cedar for this project, a duo of French composers, Jean-Francois Charles and Nicolas Sidoroff, have teamed up to create a major multi-media work which explores the life of the great French filmmaker Georges Méliès, known by most from the 2011 film Hugo. Historian Michael Zahs joins the core ensemble, violinist Miera Kim and cellist Carey Bostian, as well as guests artists guitarist John Dowdall and flutist Claudia Anderson for this entertaining program.

Special thanks to Artist Sponsors Juanita Dennert and Don & Irene (Naxera) Hamous.
