One Shoe Blues (USA)
Tintico's Afternoons (Mexico)
Pupil's Concert (Norway)
Antoine's Four Seasons (France)
To celebrate his birthday, Antoine's grandfather, a violin maker, gives him a very special book. With a nod to Disney's Fantasia, the book reveals a hidden gem inside. As Antoine's drawings jump from the page, we see Vivaldi's Four Seasons brought vividly to life on the big screen by the world-class chamber orchestra, Concerto Italiano. A sonic and visual treat unfurls, set to the timeless tunes of this beloved classical work. And take a magical ride with Chopin as he gallops through his transcendent music in a beautifully animated short with none other than superstar pianist Lang Lang at the reins. A few "rebels" break free of their time signatures. Re-imagine a Prokoviev scherzo as a soccer game of tricky moves. Finally, the richness and soul of Latin music styles are revealed in a celebration of short stories, from the new friends found tied by the tango, to a lively group of buddies who just can't get enough of the rumba. Join us as we enjoy great musical numbers, superb talent, and a lot of sabor! Bravo to the characters in these short films!
Please join us at 5pm for a pre-film program reception, with music by MIC performers!
