PORTALES – Eastern New Mexico University's College of Fine Arts will host the Spring Percussion Ensemble concert and the digital film screening of Waiting on Millie on Monday, April 23, at 7 p.m. in Buchanan Hall of the Music Building on the Portales campus.
This is free and open to the public.
The percussion ensemble will perform pieces from composers Harry Breuer, Lyle Mays Arr. Rutland, Fisher Tull and Dave Hollinden, under the direction of Neil Rutland.
Waiting on Millie is a thesis project created by Jonathan Barr for his master of fine arts in film and media arts degree from Temple University. The ENMU Percussion Ensemble will provide collaborative music, composed by Neil Rutland, and sound effects during the film screening.
"This film was shot in Portales (Woody's Jewelry and Vines Restaurant) with local actors. The score is created and performed by local musicians. In addition to creating a fun, retro happening, one of my goals of this project is to incorporate and involve as many people as possible in the filmmaking process. I hope that the movie is funny, but, more importantly, I hope it is fun," says Barr.
