The revolution will not be televised – it will be danced into being in living rooms like the very special one tucked inside The Timucua White House. Steve Radley, director of “The White House Overture,” along with Benoit Glazer and wife Elaine Corriveau held a lively conversation on Wednesday, September 23rd to inspire audiences ahead of an upcoming screening and live performance at the Global Peace Film Festival. Also joining us was Nina Streich, producer of the festival.
About the Film
“The White House Overture” is a 35 minute feature film about an underground cultural institution in Orlando, The Timucua White House. Montréal-born Benoit Glazer has been making music professionally since 1981. He is a trumpet player, arranger and a conductor for Cirque du Soleil, La Nouba in Orlando, Florida. His love for music runs deep, so deep, in 2007 he and his wife, Elaine Corriveau, built a concert hall in their house. Just about every Sunday night, strangers (who become friends) gather in their (state of the art) living room turned concert hall to share a unique experience of music and art. Admission is a dish, snacks or a bottle of wine. They’ve hosted over 400 concerts, musicians from 24 countries along with 300 artists. Watch the trailer:
