Friends of Chamber Music is thrilled to present an exclusive event for our audience and community. We are hosting the Rocky Mountain Premiere of a fascinating and beautiful new film, The Bowmakers, beginning on Thanksgiving Day and now extended through December 31.
The Bowmakers, featuring Brooklyn Rider as well as the Miró and Dover quartets, explores the world of the bow and the extraordinary masters who make them. It is a treat for anyone who loves classical music, is a musician or has musicians in the family.
The film follows the journey of the “silent servant” of the music world—from the workshops of the virtuosos of the trade, to the birthplace of the bow in France, and to Brazil, home to the imperiled tree from which the world’s finest bows are made.
A special thanks to our sponsors:
Patsy & Jim Aronstein
Alix & John Corboy
Ellen Roy Elias & Anthony D. Elias
NOTE: You will only be able to watch the film from the device and browser you purchase it on (unless you plan to cast it to your Smart TV). For example, if you’ll be watching it on your computer, you must buy the streaming ticket on your computer. Most people have found watching on a laptop/desktop is better than viewing on an IPad or phone.
