Sumner McKane Group Feature Story in Portland Press Herald GO!


The Group is honored to be a part of the One Longfellow Square “Local Score/Silent Film” series, matching Portland area bands with classic silent films. We’ve been working furiously over the past month to write and rehearse a score for “Nanook of the North,” widely recognized as the first documentary film.

Our efforts culminate next week, when we will perform the score along with a screening of the movie on April 30 and May 1.

To learn more about this project, please check out today’s GO! magazine, in the Portland Press Herald. Our show is this weeks’ cover story! Thanks to Ray Routhier and John Ewing for the thoughtfulness. If you like, you can see the story, along with a slideshow and musical accompaniment right here:
