“How would you like to change the world?” That was the question. And the answer came in an unusual form: New Mexico produced documentaries with music from a New Mexico composer performed and produced by New Mexicans that truly touch the heart.
This amazing and unique collaboration highlights global issues through a magical performance by the New Mexico Philharmonic while viewing some incredible scenes from the documentaries. Some solutions to the homeless issue are in the Emmy© Award winning film “LOOKING IN: Children Who Are Homeless,” while one of the solutions to global warming is featured in the national PBS documentary “The First Millimeter: HEALING THE EARTH.” The musical scores to each of these programs was composed by Jeffrey R. Jolly. The documentaries were produced and directed by New Mexican, Chris Schueler. In each film, vocalists (a children’s choir for Healing the Earth and a gospel choir for Looking In) were from local schools and churches.
In addition to partial screenings of the documentaries, a group of talented teachers and students from Albuquerque Studios Film & Technology Academy of the Atrisco Heritage Academy High School and DATA Charter High School will compile a video project that will be screened to the music of Albuquerque composer Daniel Davis.
Join the New Mexico Philharmonic as we see how these artists came together and helped change perceptions and ideas and helped form solutions to these global issues through music. Be inspired, meet the artists, learn the issues. How would you like to change the world?
