Sedona International Film Festival 2017

Sedona International Film Festival 2017

When you add in performances by the likes of Chicago last year and Bruce Hornsby and Michael Feinstein this coming year, the Sedona International Film Festival has really expanded our reach as an entertainment and independent film destination.

Bruce Hornsby’s work displays a creative iconoclasm that’s been a constant in the artist’s two-and-a-half decade recording career. His commercial stock soared early on, when “The Way It Is”–the title track of his 1986 debut album–became one of the most popular songs on American radio. Despite his early mainstream successes, Hornsby has pursued a more personal, idiosyncratic musical path, focusing on projects that sparked his creative interest, including collaborations with the Grateful Dead, Spike Lee, Ricky Skaggs, Don Henley, Ornette Coleman, Bob Dylan, Bela Fleck, Bonnie Raitt, Pat Metheny, and Robbie Robertson. Hornsby’s performance will offer a glimpse of a restless spirit who continues to push forward into exciting new musical terrain.

Michael Feinstein has built a dazzling career over the last three decades bringing the music of the Great American songbook to the world. From recordings that have earned him five Grammy Award nominations to his Emmy nominated PBS-TV specials, his acclaimed NPR series and concerts spanning the globe – in addition to his appearances at iconic venues such as The White House, Buckingham Palace, Hollywood Bowl, Carnegie Hall and Sydney Opera House – his work as an educator and archivist define Feinstein as one of the most important musical forces of our time.

In addition to Hornsby and Feinstein, the 2017 Festival will feature a mid-week salute to Andrew Lloyd Weber’s Broadway. Terry Barber, a former member of the two-time Grammy Award winning group “Chanticleer”, sings songs that we all know and love from Broadway’s most famous shows, the music of Andrew Lloyd Webber. Standing ovations punctuate this evening of musical gems. Songs like “The Music of the Night”, from “Phantom of the Opera” , the gut wrenching “Gethsemane” from “Jesus Christ Superstar”, “Memory” from “Cats”, “Love Changes Everything”, from “Aspects of Love” and others hits from 10 Andrew Lloyd Webber musicals. Terry will be accompanied by a stunning musical cast of 7 musicians plus 3 other voices.

In addition, the festival will present a cabaret-style performance by Emmy Award winner Peter Marshall, whose broad resume includes more than 50 television, movie and Broadway credits, not to mention a 14-year stint as host of hit TV game show, The Hollywood Squares.
