Vintage Christmas Films w/ The Reese Project



Join Tom & Laurie Reese of The Reese Project for an educational and interesting foray into vintage Christmas films. These beautiful films show the spirit of Christmas in an earlier time. This program is geared toward children, but open to all ages!  Also included is an educational session after the films. We will be demonstrating our instruments as well as some simple ideas about composition, and how we write music for different types of scenes in the films.”
