Lynn Harrell & Bach Film Screening
Director John Forsen (Violin Masters: Two Gentlemen of Cremona) returns to Central Oregon with a screening of his newest film, Lynn Harrell Bach Cello Suites. What is really incredible here is that Harrell performs the first two Bach Cell Suites on a Stradivari instrument made in 1713 valued at over 20 million dollars. I would be so nervous touching something worth so much money that I would be lucky to get through the first Cello Suite, let alone two of them. Admission also includes a meet and greet with John Forsen before the screening and a Q&A directly after. Part of the High Desert Chamber Music Spotlight Series.

Odysseo is the new show by Cavalia, a theatrical company conceived by Normand Latourelle, one of the founders of Cirque Du Soleil. Cavalia is a mixture of equestrian and performing arts, multimedia, special effects, and acrobatics ariel stunts and dance. It's Cirque with horses, yo! Anyway, Odysseo is set under a 38-meter high white big top and has more than 70 horses, a lake that appears from nowhere, and all kinds of crazy, mind-blowing visuals for the horse loving circus enthusiast in you. The screening of Odysseo will also include a raffle, silent auction, pizza, and invisible horses.
