Movie Premiere: Moving Words

Movie Premiere: Moving Words

Sunday, December 4, 2016 -

3:00 pm to 4:30 pm

"Moving Words" is a collaboration between youth in the Waterloo Writing Project, Shuaib  Meacham's hip-hop literacy group, The Truth and UNI art students. The project encourages all participants to reflect on the importance of community and citizenship while also acknowledging and celebrating the similarities and differences between each of our experiences through creative lenses. Waterloo Writing Project students will use ideas generated through shared journal exercises between all students as inspiration to write creative written works that will be passed on to 3D Concepts students who will, through the support of the UNI Digital Media Hub, create short, stop-motion films based on the writers' works. The Truth musicians will then use the written works and the films to create a soundtrack that will be layered on to each film. This semester long collaboration will culminate in a public movie premiere (complete with a red carpet!) at the Waterloo Center for the Arts where the community is invited to celebrate alongside these writers, musicians and artists and see the films they created together projected on the "big screen". A panel discussion with all of the artists will follow the screening.

Canadian Brass

Canadian Brass

Sunday, December 4, 2016 - 4:00 pm

Classic Christmas – Your favorite Christmas music played like you’ve never heard it.

If you said Canadian Brass represented the "gold standard" among brass quintets, you'd be right on the mark. Aside from performing on 24K gold-plated instruments, the group, led by its avuncular tuba master (and sole original member) Chuck Daellenbach, essentially put the idea of the brass quintet on the map. Renowned for genre-bending versatility, joyous performances and gentle humor, the award-winning Brass is almost single-handedly responsible for elevating the art of the brass quintet to what it is today.
