Red Cedar Chamber Music Presents: Brinton Surprise @ The Muscatine Art Center

Sunday, May 8, 2022

Red Cedar presents a multi-media extravaganza featuring live chamber music accompanying magic lantern slides and early silent films from the Brinton Collection of early entertainment materials. 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 to most from the 2011 film Hugo. Historian Michael Zahs provides narration with music performed by violinist Miera Kim, cellist Carey Bostian, and guests artists guitarist John Dowdall and flutist Claudia Anderson for this entertaining program.
