Are you an opera lover?  Then you won’t want to miss Becoming Traviata on July 11th  at 7:30.  Zeroing in on the dynamics between the world-famous soprano Natalie Dessay and the director Jean-Francois Sivadier, this vibrant film reveals how two great creative minds build the story of a doomed love affair.

If folk music is your beat, an amazing evening awaits you on July 23rd at 7:30. First, we are screening the folk-roc doc Sing Me the Songs That Say I Love You: A Concert for Kate McGarrigle, an all-star musical tribute to the legendary Canadian folk singer/songwriter who died in 2010.  McGarrigle’s famous musical family turns tragedy into celebration with a little help from their friends, including folk greats Norah Jones and Emmylou Harris.

But that’s not all….there’s a Q&A with folk-pop artist Sloan Wainwright (McGarrigle was married to her brother, Loudon Wainwright III) and WFUV’s John Platt

And that’s still not all…Sloan Wainwright, accompanied by guitarist Stephen Murphy, will entertain us with a LIVE PERFORMANCE!

Watch the video below to listen to their wonderful sound.

Sounds of Summer starts July 10th….get your tickets today.
