Welcome to the West

GUESS WHAT!!! Welcome to the West debuts

November 20 - 7:30 pm Central time.

This time, Lumedia brings early music to new audiences by combining Baroque fiddling tunes and 1940s western swing in a multimedia concert film about ranching life in the American West.

The baroque band provides the soundtrack, reanimating historic film footage and photographs from the Library of Congress. Lumedia Musicworks’ Texas ensemble expanded to collaborate with multiple videographers, cowboy poets and narrators from Texas, Nevada, South Dakota, Idaho and Utah.

Clearly, this will be a concert experience like no other! Check out the clips below and get your tickets.
