Join us at the Museum of Ventura County in Downtown Ventura on June 8 at 6 pm for an evening of music, film, and more.
See and hear:
★ live music by Rachel Flowers ★ the uplifting film about her life ★ Q+A with the film principals
The evening starts with a reception and live performance by world-renown musician and Oxnard phenom Rachel Flowers. Then sit back for a screening of Hearing Is Believing, the uplifting documentary by Ventura filmmaker Lorenzo DeStefano that chronicles Rachel's life in an engaging portrait of a tight-knit American family with Rachel's stunning music as the soundtrack.
Appearing with Rachel in the film are Grammy winners Arturo Sandoval, Stevie Wonder, and Dweezil Zappa, and Grammy-nominated jazz pianist Taylor Eigsti, the late progressive rock icon Keith Emerson, Hawaii ukulele master Benny Chong, and the Santa Barbara Youth Symphony. A Q+A panel follows with the film's principals.
This event also kicks off the U.S. premiere of an exhibition by prominent Cuban artist Pedro González Pulido, featuring acrylic portraits inspired by Rachel and her music.
