"We've Got Three Wounded On Board"
We welcome Morton Dean to present the first public screening of American Medevac, a documentary about revisiting veterans he once covered from the Vietnam battlefield. To Dean's and Cooke's surprise, the veterans’ healing continues to this day, and may help guide the veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan. The documentary embraces the bravery of the medevac crew and, by extension, all those who served their country during that controversial conflict. A question and answer session with Morton Dean will follow the film.
From Tragedy to Transcendence: Bach, Casals,
& the Six Suites for 'Cello Solo
Tuesday, September 6, 6:30 p.m.
This multimedia presentation by Steven Hancoff explores Johann Sebastian Bach and his Six Suites for 'Cello Solo. Steven Hancoff is an accomplished guitarist whose work, ranging from ragtime to jazz to classical, has been critically acclaimed for decades. He served as an official Artistic Ambassador of the United States for fifteen years, traveling the world sharing American music with many different cultures. This summer, he has taken his latest project on tour. His program explores the life of Bach and the resurrection of his music by a teenage genius named Felix Mendelssohn, as well as how Hancoff himself became so engrossed with their stories. Join us for selected images and music celebrating Bach, Mendelssohn, and Hancoff himself, who will conclude the evening with a performance of a Bach ’cello suite transposed for the acoustic guitar. Admission is free.
