In the fall of 2014, a National Geographic team set out on a harrowing journey to the summit of Burma’s Hkakabo Razi to determine if it is indeed Southeast Asia’s highest point. They didn’t realize that the greatest obstacle wouldn’t be their dwindling rations, the grueling jungle hikes, or the life-threatening hypothermia. It was the force of conflicting personalities that threatened to unravel the entire endeavor. Leader Hilaree Nelson recounts the tough decisions she had to make to keep the team together, accompanied by photographer Cory Richard’s dramatic stills and clips from Renan Ozturk’s searing documentary Down to Nothing.

PROGRAM
It’s not well known that Charlie Chaplin composed almost all of the music in his films. This unique program juxtaposes the music of Chaplin with works by the great composers who influenced him most, including Debussy, Stravinsky, Brahms, and Gershwin. Chaplin’s relationships with these compositional masters is explored through music and story with screen clips of Chaplin’s silent era films, musical accompaniment by Philippe Quint, and rare video footage of Chaplin conducting his orchestras in recording sessions!

“Chaplin’s Smile is overflowing with a very personal brand of joy that Philippe Quint is anxious to share. It’s irresistible.”
– WCRB Boston.

“Quint seems to have struck the perfect balance of finding Chaplin’s robust charm in tracks such as ‘Weeping Willows’ and ‘Tango Bitterness’, while keeping an ever-present romantic tone in this album.”

THE VIBE: Nordic folk / traditional / classical influences 

PROGRAM
Contemporary and endlessly innovative in their approach, Nordic roots trio Dreamers’ Circus draw inspiration from the deep traditions of folk music in the region and reshape them into something bright, shiny and new. This young Danish trio includes Nikolaj Busk on piano and accordion, Ale Carr on Nordic cittern, and Rune Tonsgaard Sørensen of the Danish String Quartet on violin. With an adventurous attitude and outstanding musicianship, Dreamers’ Circus is at the forefront of the Nordic folk and world music scenes. Join us in The JAI for the triumphant return of this astonishingly talented acoustic trio.

“This is music that paints images in your mind, that fires the imagination… Dreamers’ Circus celebrate more than the colour and vibrancy of Scandinavian music, they celebrate the ability it has to drive inspiration and innovation, and place themselves firmly in the vanguard of that movement”
