Secrest Series: “Kannapolis: A Moving Portrait”

Jenny Scheinman, an acclaimed composer, singer, and violinist, performs an original score set to 70-year-old archival films taken by the late North Carolina filmmaker H. Lee Waters. Scheinman and her musical sidemen create a living soundtrack of new folk songs, fiddle music, and field sounds to accompany Waters’ footage of the Piedmont in the early 1940s, assembled by film director Finn Taylor and editor Rick LeCompte. A multi-media work originally commissioned by Duke Performances at Duke University.

Tickets for the community are $5-$18 and seating is unassigned.

Doors to the hall will open at 7:00 pm.

Wake Forest University and Medical School faculty, staff and retirees receive free admission for themselves and one guest to each Secrest Artists Series performance. WFU Students receive free admission for themselves. Simply show your WFU I.D. at the door.

We encourage those with a WFU I.D. to pre-register so we can keep track of available seats for the community at large.
