The Alaska Suite

PRESENTED BY: Meaningful Movies in Kirkland
7:00 PM, Friday, January 18, 2019
Location: Kirkland, WA (click for map)

We’re trying something different this month: More than just a movie, this event is a multimedia presentation.

“The Alaska Suite” is a story of beauty, loss, and hope.  It features a five-piece chamber jazz ensemble performing the original music of Seattle pianist and composer Nelda Swiggett. But this is not just a concert. Combining the emotional power of multiple mediums – live music, spoken words, images and poetry – the Alaska Suite seeks to inspire its audience to be proactive about addressing climate change.

The performance celebrates the beauty and majesty of Alaska; laments the rapid impacts of global warming in Alaska (and all of the Arctic); alerts the audience to similar impacts where they live; and last, and most importantly, uplifts spirits with reasons for hope and calls to action.

Alaska is our “canary in the coal mine,” and should be a wake up call for all of us.
