SUN 8/29: Classical, Film

Yep, not much cheapness that interested me today. Enjoy the beautiful day!


SUN 8/29

Huntington Consort
at Longfellow National Historic Site, 105 Brattle St, Cambridge (near Harvard Sq)

A quartet of players (cello, oboe, violin, harpsichord) from the Handel & Haydn Society are getting their Baroque on.

Along with some good ol' Handel, they'll play pieces by other monsters of b'rock: Telemann, Castello, Uccellini, Gabrielli.

Chill out to some tunes that might have been faces of Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and visit his crib.

SUN 8/29

"Children of Invention"
at Chinatown Park, Kennedy Greenway, North of Beach St, Boston

I thought "Films at the Gate" only screened martial arts flicks, but I guess the annual outdoor film series celebrates Chinese cinema in general.

When they started speaking English in the trailer, I was a bit confused. Then it sunk in that this is a indie film that played at Sundance Film Festival last year -- and it was made in the Boston area.

Unfortunately not a kung-fu movie, but a dramatic story on a Chinese-American single parent who are struggling to make it. From the trailer, this is mostly in English.

Folding chairs are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Feel free to bring your own seating. (When I passed by on Friday night, there were a couple open chairs.
