Jeffery Meyer conducts the ASU Symphony Orchestra in a dramatic program of Eastern European works influenced by events of World War II, featuring Yuhui Li on piano, 2018 Concerto Competition winner. Core repertoire works by Dmitri Shostakovich and Béla Bartók are performed with Krzysztof Penderecki’s avant-garde Threnody and the masterpiece of neoclassicism Concerto for String Orchestra by pioneering female composer Grażyna Bacewicz.
The Art House Cinema Series is new to Scottsdale Arts this season. New films will be added throughout the season.
The Rural Route Film Festival was created to highlight works that deal with people and places outside the bustle of the city. It includes films that tackle some of the most important topics of the day in the slow food movement, global warming/environment and sustainability, including one on a London poacher and forager and another about a UFO festival encounter in a small Wisconsin town.
NOTE: “Scenes of farm/rural practices and animated violence are realistically depicted and may be upsetting to some audience members.”
Rural Route Film Festival Director and Founder Alan Webber will do a Skype Q&A following the screening.
Presented in partnership with No Festival Required
