New Mexico Philharmonic Brings PULSE Performance to the KiMo:
“Changing the World” Features NM Filmmakers and Musicians
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE ALBUQUERQUE, NM, August 1, 2012—Last year the New Mexico Philharmonic presented an avant garde program at the KiMo Theatre that featured electronic music and innovative film. This year, the PULSE concert is bringing an important question to the forefront: How would you change the world?
The answer came in the unusual form of 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 comes to life on Sunday, September 30th at 4 p.m. in the most New Mexican of places, the historic KiMo Theatre with stories that highlight global issues and combine a magical performance by the New Mexico Philharmonic with the viewing of incredible scenes from two documentary films.
The issues covered include homeless children and solutions to the homeless issue in the Emmy® Award winning Documentary “LOOKING IN: Children Who are Homeless.” One of the solutions to global warming/climate change is the focus of the national PBS documentary, “The First Millimeter: Healing the Earth.”
The musical score to each of these programs was composed by New Mexico musician Jeffrey R. Jolly. The documentaries were produced and directed by New Mexican Chris Schueler. In, addition, for each of the films vocalists—a children’s choir for “Healing the Earth,” and the New Hope Full Gospel Baptist Church Choir for “Looking In”—will bring stirring performances that enhance the auditory experience.
A group of talented teachers and students from the Albuquerque Studios Film & Technology Academy of the Atrisco Heritage Academy High School as well as from DATA Charter High School will compile a video project that will be screened to the music of Albuquerque composer Daniel Davis.
Don’t miss this inspirational program created by New Mexicans for New Mexicans that will move you in new and surprising ways.
