Commemorate Philly Celebrates Jazz Month with a free film screening in the Free Library's Montgomery Auditorium!
In Fred Ho's Last Year (2014, Dir. Steven de Castro), Fred Ho, the award-winning composer, saxophonist, and revolutionary, learns he's got one month to live. Watch the firebrand in his final year fighting cancer, leading protests and orchestras, publishing books, and producing his magnum opus: an elaborate, manga-inspired samurai opera.
Though based in New York, Ho flourished in Philadelphia, working and world-premiering music at Temple and Drexel, and completing residencies at the Fleisher Art Memorial and Painted Bride Arts Center.
