The Keweenaw Symphony Orchestra and conScience: Michigan Tech Chamber Singers will join this year’s 41 North Film Festival for an opening night presentation of Voices of Light: The Passion of Joan of Arc on November 2, 2017.

Dreyer will be presented with a live performance of Richard Einhorn’s hauntingly beautiful composition for solo voices, chorus and orchestra. Film theorist and historian David Bordwell will also be in attendance.
