Double the entertainment tonight, fabulous movie, fun mini-concert by the local singing group the Beaconettes.

“Landfill Harmonic” follows the Recycled Orchestra of Cateura, a Paraguayan musical group that plays instruments made entirely out of garbage. When their story goes viral, the orchestra is catapulted into the global spotlight. Under the guidance of idealistic music director Favio Chavez, the orchestra must navigate a strange new world of arenas and sold-out concerts. However, when a natural disaster strikes their community, Favio must find a way to keep the orchestra intact and provide a source of hope for their town. The film is a testimony to the transformative power of music and the resilience of the human spirit.

Winner of numerous international film awards you will come away from this film with a joyful heart.

Special guests for the evening are the local Beacon Hill sensations, the acapella group the Beaconettes, singing new songs inspired by recent events.
