The Musical Language of Water: A Concert, Film Preview, Conversation & Reception
Wednesday, April 3, 2013 from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM (EDT)
Join us for a FWWIC first – a live concert and preview of the short film, “A-E-I-O-U Water,” followed by a conversation about water quality with Dr. Julie Becker, founder of the Women’s Health & Environment Network and program director, University of the Sciences; and Joanne Dahme, public affairs manager, Philadelphia Water Department, and author of Contagion, The Plague, and Tombstone Tea.
Directed by Emmy-award winning composer and filmmaker Rodney Whittenberg, “A-E-I-O-U Water” includes a music video, with music composed Dan Kleiman, performed by Phyllis Chapell & SIORA and featuring Paul Jost. It is dedicated to the late Dan Kleiman, co-founder of SIORA, and will become part of the FWWIC’s educational programming.
Phyllis Chapell is recognized as a vocal treasure: “One of the top jazz vocalists of all time.” —Jazz Times. “Phyllis Chapell is an elegant singer who will steal your heart away if you let her....tasteful, eclectic and real.” —The Philadelphia Inquirer.
