Movie –The Music of Strangers: Yo-Yo Ma & the Silk Road Ensemble

A VERY Special Feature Movie –The Music of Strangers: Yo-Yo Ma & the Silk Road Ensemble (92 minutes). This Grammy-nominated documentary follows members of the Ensemble as they gather in locations across the world, exploring the ways art can both preserve traditions and shape cultural evolution. Blending performance footage, personal interviews, and archival film, Oscar-winning director Morgan Neville and producer Caitrin Rogers focus on the personal journeys of a small group of Silk Road Ensemble mainstays — Kinan Azmeh (Syria), Kayhan Kalhor (Iran), Yo-Yo Ma (France/United States), Wu Man (China), and Cristina Pato (Spain) — to chronicle passion, talent, and sacrifice. Through these moving individual stories, the filmmakers paint a vivid portrait of a bold musical experiment and a global search for the ties that bind. Because we want everyone who is the least bit interested in music to be able to see it without missing some of Open Mic night, Open Mic will be delayed until after movie is finished. From Will: “You will never see a better documentary than this one. If you aren’t thrilled to your core, you’re wrong”. After the movie, there will be a wine and hors d’oeuvres reception for Will & Rebecca’s old friends Mary Kogen and Harold Gray from Portland, OR. Meet and greet these fine musicians, formerly the piano department of Portland State University.

Friday Night Movie – The Big Short (Canceled)

(Canceled)  --- Friday Night Movie – The Big Short (130 minutes).

It focuses on a handful of disparate characters who, for various reasons, were the only ones who saw it coming and knew what it meant, but also saw it as an opportunity to make a lot of money. Stars Christian Bale, Steve Carell, Ryan Gosling, and Brad Pitt.
