Sedona Events

Sedona International Film Festival is the official host of the new “Deconstructing the Beatles” series, joining hundreds of theatres around the country for this special four-part event.

The third in the series — “Deconstructing The Beatles: Revolver” — will show in Sedona on Tuesday, June 20, at 7 p.m. at the festival’s Mary D. Fisher Theatre.

In “Deconstructing The Beatles: Revolver,” composer/producer Scott Freiman takes Beatles fans young and old into the studio with The Beatles as they create their 1966 album, Revolver.

In many music polls, Revolver is rated the top album of all time. The 1966 album launched a period of studio experimentation for the Beatles that coincided with their decision to stop performing live. With memorable songs, such as “Eleanor Rigby,” “Yellow Submarine” and “Tomorrow Never Knows,” the Beatles pushed popular music to a place it had never been before.

“Deconstructing The Beatles: Revolver” explores the groundbreaking production techniques that went into creating this landmark piece of music history. In addition to many of the tracks from Revolver, Freiman will also explore the creation of two other songs recorded during the same time period, “Paperback Writer” and “Rain."

Freiman conducts an educational journey into the creative process of the Beatles performances and recording sessions.

Scott Freiman combines his love of the Beatles with his experience as a composer, producer and engineer to deliver educational lectures about the creative process of the Beatles. He moves past the personalities of the four Beatles to uncover the reasons why their music continues to be loved by millions.

His multimedia presentations transport his audiences into Abbey Road Studio with anecdotes about The Beatles’ recording sessions, allowing fans to experience the evolution of The Beatles’ groundbreaking albums and songs.

The remaining title in the “Deconstructing The Beatles” series is Rubber Soul, which will show on Tuesday, June 27, at 7 p.m.

“Deconstructing The Beatles: Revolver” will be shown at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre on Tuesday, June 20, at 7 p.m. Tickets are $12 general admission, or $9 for Film Festival members.

Tickets are available in advance at the Sedona International Film Festival office; by calling 282-1177; or online at SedonaFilmFestival.org. Both the theatre and film festival office are located at 2030 W. SR 89A in West Sedona.

On Saturday, June 17, at 7 p.m., come to the Sedona Posse Grounds Hub to enjoy music from Paris to Rio de Janeiro with Vismaya and a trio of visiting musicians.

Well known to Sedona, Vismaya, aka Ingrid Hagelberg, is a recording artist and vocalist who has toured the world with her international jazz cabaret act. Vismaya has always loved, performed and recorded Brazilian music and it is her great joy to present these wonderful musicians for an evening of Brazilian and Latin music.

Originally from Sweden, she has released several CDs internationally and performed at jazz festivals and supper clubs. Her vocal stylings feature a repertoire of songs in English, French, Swedish, German and Portuguese.

For this performance, she is joined by Luiz Santos on drums and percussion who recently relocated to Phoenix from New York City. His vibrant and joyful music will make listeners feel alive and fill hearts with hope. He has recorded several CD projects in Rio De Janeiro, featuring his own compositions.

Pianist Dave Henning originally hails from Troy, Mich., north of Detroit. After moving to Phoenix in 1997, Henning started working immediately and has never been in more demand. He shows up as a regular at local concert venues like The Nash, The Valley Bar, Jazz in the Hills and Sacred Grounds.

When not leading his own DH4 quartet, he is also the pianist for Miguel “Mambo” DeLeon in his Latin jazz group, Carte Blanc, as well as his 12-piece salsa band, the El Mambo Orchestra.

Allen Ames, playing violin, bass and guitar, lives in Phoenix, but performs often in the Verde Valley. He has played with orchestras and chamber ensembles including the Arizona Opera and Ballet. Since 1985, he has explored a wider field of musical improvisation, playing and recording with Mosaico Flamenco and R. Carlos Nakai.

Vismaya recently returned from Cape Town, South Africa, where she performed with musicians from her first CD, “Flying High,” and will return to Paris this fall to perform at Cercle Suedois and Chez Papa Jazz club.

Doors open at 6.30 p.m. so arrive and look at the Legendary Luminaries art show featuring the art of Adele Seronde, Ruth Waddell, Theodosia Green and Leda Livant before the rhythms of Brazil begin.
