Sinfonia by Malibu Taetz, Thomas Panio
An exploration of the places your imagination can take you while listening to music. This film is an adaptation of Timothy Broege’s musical piece “Sinfonia VI” and was originally shown while the musicians of the Kelowna City Concert Band performed the music live on a stage underneath it.
