Women who like to sing have everything they need to join the fun with Red RockAppella. The popular chorus will host an open house Monday, Sept. 25, from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at West Sedona School, Room 604, 570 Posse Ground Road.

Under the direction of Jeanie Carroll, music teacher and local performer, the chorus will perform several songs to demonstrate how four-part barbershop harmony works. Guests will learn a simple song and, by the end of the evening, will be singing along together in beautiful harmony. New friends, great music and a wonderful time are in store. Light refreshments will be available.

Red RockAppella is a chapter of Sweet Adelines, an international nonprofit music education organization for women. Any woman of average singing ability, even if she has had no vocal training, will find a part that fits her voice range. Knowledge of musical theory isn’t necessary. The Sweet Adelines is a music education organization, so this, and voice development and coaching, are among the many valuable member benefits.

Although the organization is about singing, performing and education, these are just a few of its rewards. Members also find that the chorus is a source of genuine friendships, increased self-confidence and the invaluable motivation and inspiration of others.

In addition to promoting harmony and friendship among women, Red RockAppella performs regularly throughout the community, offering its talent for entertainment at civic events and charitable functions. An annual show, performances in all seasons, and a holiday “singing card” event are just some of the activities the chorus holds throughout the year.

Red RockAppella meets every Monday from 6:30 to 9 p.m., with rehearsals alternating between locations in West Sedona and the Village of Oak Creek, for music, fellowship and fun. Visitors are always welcome.

Call Carroll at 300-7092 or Elisa at 554-1093, or visit the chorus’ website at redrockappella.org for more information.

Lynn V. Andrews, a New York Times-bestselling author and shaman, will appear at the Andrea Smith Gallery in Tlaquepaque on Saturday, Sept. 23, from noon to 3 p.m.

This is a rare appearance by Andrews, author of the Medicine Woman series, which chronicles her three decades of study and work with shaman healers on four continents. Today, she is recognized as a leader in the field of spiritual healing and personal empowerment.

A shaman healer and mystic, Andrews is widely acknowledged as a major link between the ancient world of shamanism and modern society’s thirst for profound personal healing and a deeper understanding of the pathway to enlightenment.

Andrews will be at the Andrea Smith Gallery to promote her latest project, Sacred Vision Oracle Cards. Throughout time and across cultures, shamanic wisdom has been revered as a wellspring of power and guidance. The word shaman actually means “one who sees in the dark.” Now, Andrews and celebrated American Indian artist Robert Taylor have collaborated to create Sacred Vision Oracle Cards, bringing the ancient wisdom of shamanic tradition.

Combining striking imagery with insightful text, each card features a prayer to guide individuals on their quest for inner peace and harmony. The cards help tap into the inner shaman to see through the darkness in a life and help a person become the best version of him or herself.

The cards offer clarity amid the murkiness of reactions and emotions. So often, people don’t trust their powerful intuition simply because they aren’t familiar with how to use it. This deck will help individuals assess their life or a certain situation more clearly, resolving any indecision they may be feeling and awakening their natural intuitive gifts.

Meet Andrews on Saturday, Sept. 23, from noon to 3 p.m. at the Andrea Smith Gallery in Sedona, and get a signed copy of Sacred Vision Oracle Cards. The gallery is at Tlaquepaque, Suite D102, beneath the Oak Creek Brewery. Call 203-9002 for details.

The Sedona International Film Festival joins hundreds of theaters around the nation to celebrate Art House Theater Day on Sunday, Sept. 24, with sneak preview screenings of “Lucky” at 4 and 7 p.m. at the festival’s Mary D. Fisher Theatre.

See the film on this special occasion before it opens in New York and Los Angeles a week later.

Art House Theater Day celebrates the art house theater and the cultural role it plays in a community. It is a day to recognize the year-round contributions of film and filmmakers, patrons, projectionists and staff, and the brick-and-mortar theaters that are passionately dedicated to providing access to the best cinematic experience.

Art House Theater Day celebrates the legacy of independent theaters as advocates for cinema arts. In an age where media has become more digital than tangible, more solitary than social, art house theaters remain the physical spaces where film lovers congregate and connect with intrepid, creative filmmaking. They are the beating heart for new and exciting cinema.

“Lucky” features an all-star cast including Harry Dean Stanton, Ed Begley Jr., Tom Skerritt and Beth Grant.

The film follows the spiritual journey of a 90-year-old atheist [Stanton] and the quirky characters that inhabit his off-the-map desert town. Having out-lived and out-smoked all of his contemporaries, the fiercely independent Lucky finds himself at the precipice of life, thrust into a journey of self-exploration, leading toward that which is so often unattainable: Enlightenment.

Acclaimed character actor John Carroll Lynch’s directorial debut, “Lucky” is at once a love letter to the life and career of Stanton as well as a meditation on mortality, loneliness, spirituality and human connection.

“The performance of a lifetime,” said Joe Leydon of Variety. “Everything Harry Dean Stanton has done in his career, and his life, has brought him to his moment of triumph in ‘Lucky.’”

“Fantastic. Stanton is phenomenal. One of the best performances of 2017.” — Brian Tallerico, RogerEbert.com

“A wise and wistful love letter — both fun and full of life. Few people have ever done it better than Harry Dean Stanton.” — David Erlich, Indiewire

“Lucky” will show at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre on Sunday, Sept. 24, at 4 and 7 p.m. Tickets are $12 or $9 for Film Festival members. Call 282-1177 for tickets and more information. Both the theater and film festival office are at 2030 W. State Route 89A in West Sedona. Visit SedonaFilmFestival.org for more information.
