Horns a Plenty

Join us for another great Sunday Concert at the San Lorenzo Library. This time we're featuring Horns a Plenty!

From their website:

"Horns a Plenty is a 6 piece brass ensemble that is re-defining what it is to be a brass quintet. We're all organic. Nothing electric. Who could ask for anything more?!

We play ballroom dance music, swing, jazz, rhumba, cha-cha, Dixieland, classical music, fanfares, 19th century Americana, wedding favorites, love songs and ballads. We have one foot in JS Bach and the other in Duke Ellington, with plenty of brass in between. We want to squeeze as much music as we can out of each and every note.

We play our music for the love of it and invite you, the audience, to join us in this journey of musical discovery."

Check out Horns a Plenty at their website http://hornsaplenty.org/

Albany FilmFest Presents...2 Scary Shorts + Filmmaker Q&A

Albany FilmFest Presents: 2 Scary Shorts + Filmmaker Q&A

Good news for would-be scary film directors: Bay Area filmmakers Timothy Plain ("The Spirit Machine") and Hannah Scharlin-Pettee ("Orientation") are here to tell you how independent filmmakers do it. According to Hannah, "Horror films are some of the cheapest to make!"

After the films, the filmmakers will discuss their films, the challenges they faced and the resourceful DIY special effects tricks they used, share some pre-production photography and drawings, and take audience questions.

"Orientation" (12 minutes): A new transfer student finds herself living in a haunted dorm room.

"The Spirit Machine" (22 minutes): A desperate, out of touch father and his teenage daughter must work together to solve a series of puzzles and traps built to prevent Edison's last invention, the "spirit machine," from being found.

Co-presentation of Albany FilmFest, Albany Library, and Friends of the Albany Library, and Albany Parks and Recreation. Films not rated*** Parents please note: This is a spooky pre-Halloween event, so expect a few jump scares and ghostly images, as well as an allusion to suicide. May not be suitable for young children.
