Last December 2017, I had the pleasure of taking part in a huge project in my role at principal percussionist with the 21st Century Consort. H. Paul Moon, of Zen Violence Films, worked with the Consort to create a film version of Jon Deak’s The Passion of Scrooge that was written for our ensemble. For the past many years we have performed this piece around the holidays and we always have a full house. Moon has put together a truly stunning cinematic interpretation of Deak’s piece and it is a completely unique and wonderful experience.
Details about the film can be found HERE.
There will be a screening of the film in Washington, D.C. on December 8 at 3:30 pm at the Smithsonian American Art Gallery before our 5 pm concert. I hope to see you there!
