The River Road Choir and orchestra will perform Clif Hardin’s Requiem. First commissioned and performed in 1993 at River Road, the Requiem is a moving musical portrayal of the experiences surrounding death and dying. With settings of extraordinary texts ranging from the timeless words of Ecclesiastes to 20th century poets, Requiem powerfully evokes the complex themes of anger, grief remembrance, and gratitude that are common to our experience of losing a loved one.
The Global Labor Film Festival presents the documentary, Gaucho Del Norte, by Andres Caballero. This video, with its beautiful cinematography, tells the story of a Patagonian man, recruited to work in Idaho herding sheep across the rugged landscape. Far from family and home the physical and psychological demands he faces on the job force him to question whether it is all worthwhile. Admission with donation at the door.
