Gloucester Filmmaker Dennis Lanson’s “To Hear the Music” Airs on PBS This Sunday!!!

Dear Friends and Family,

I thought you might like to know that Gloucester filmmaker Dennis Lanson’s fine documentary about the organ we (C.B. Fisk) built at Harvard University will be shown on WGBH Channel 2 at five o’clock on Sunday, January 11.

It’s called “To Hear the Music,” and it not only follows the construction and installation of our Opus 139 at Harvard’s Memorial Church, but also looks back at the 54 year history of our unique Gloucester company, and at the life of Charles Fisk, our founder and mentor.

Here’s a link to the trailer, and other info as well.

Please help us get the word out by forwarding this on to folks you know who might be interested.

Best wishes for the new year,

Greg

Red Shed Film Festival Highlights

The Red Shed Film Festival had a tremendous turnout Saturday night. Festival organizers Henry Cooper, Michael Kelly, and Phil Hopkins were there hosting the screenings, and did a fabulous job running the event. I had a wonderful time and plan to participate again next year. Dining al fresco under the cherry trees on Wally’s Bistrot’s super delicious barbeque and Twin Lights soda just added to the fun.

For the next few nights, I’ll post several of my favorite films screened at the festival. Some may have played previously on Good Morning Gloucester, but would be worth seeing again. I hope you enjoy them as much as did I!

The first film, To Hear the Music: The Opus 139 Project by Dennis Larson, is a nine-minute trailer to the larger project of the same name, and features our own Greg Bover!

The Opus 139 Project is an independent documentary film that tracks the progress of design and construction of a new pipe organ for Harvard University’s Memorial Church, built by the C.B. Fisk Pipe Organ Company of Gloucester, Massachusetts. For more information, please contact producer@tohearthemusic.com. Also, find The Opus 139 Project on Facebook and become a fan!

Rockport Festivals produced The Red Shed Film Festival as part of Motif No.1 Day in association with Granite Vision Video Production.
