I have been invited to perform with the Utah Symphony on several outdoor concerts in Utah's most treasured landscapes. It's the symphony's "Great American Road Trip" Tour. The concerts feature 2 of my works, and me performing on Native American flute with the orchestra. Attendees will have a chance to experience the phenomenal night skies of Utah in post-concert "sky parties," where astronomy organizations will present sky lectures and allow for viewing through high powered telescopes. It's going to be exciting! If you are nearby, please come join me! For more information, visit http://www.utahsymphony.org/tours/gart/
The wonderful live-action & animated film Iroquois Creation Story (www.facebook.com/IroquoisCreationFilm) — featuring Seneca dancers along with Garth Fagan and his company — is still making the festival rounds, this time headed to Lithuania! It will screen as a competitive film entry during the 3-day film festival, August 25-27, 2017, called the "Wolves Independent International Film Festival" (filmfreeway.com/festival/WIIFA). The festival showcases all genres films about nature, heritage, environment, history, culture, ethnography, adventure, wildlife, indigenous cultures and social issues. The festival offers daytime as well as evening screenings. The Festival opens doors for young people and their families and for anyone looking to watch great films, who want to meet and learn from professionals. All genres are eligible, and our beloved Iroquois Creation Story is an official entry this year! Kudos once again to the entire ICS team! My original music score was recorded by Mankato Symphony, with vocalizations by songstress Joanne Shenandoah on the final song.
