When I reported on Sunday's movie at
the Palace of Fine Arts, I was overwhelmed by the number of people that
came and the energy and enthusiasm. I neglected to mention some other
aspects of the event.
This past Saturday and Sunday also featured between-show performances by the chorus of Sufism Reoriented. Around 40 chorus members delivered thrilling renditions of the American Arti and several other songs during three intermissions on Saturday, and three different songs at Sunday performances.
What with the art show, the film, the chorus, the book table, and the Palace refreshment center, it was quite a multi-media show. The atmosphere was light, buzzing, joyful, and profound.
I heard from someone who worked at the first (4 pm) showing yesterdayMondayand she said there were 80 people at that showing. That's exceptional for a 4 pm show on a Monday.
If I hear any more, I'll pass it on.
