August 26th 4pm to 6pm
Humanities Montana Series: Finding Montana
Journalist Ednor Therriault shines a spotlight into interesting but not widely known subjects in every corner of the state, bringing stories from one region to the people of another. Through stories, images and even original songs, he fosters discussion about the differences we celebrate, but also the things we might be surprised to learn we have in common.
September 2nd 4pm to 6pm
Wilbur Rehmann Quartet
Wilbur Rehmann and his Quartet have brought to us a sense of joy, wonder and solitude with their original jazz interpretations, which explore the interior landscapes of the American West and the meaning of wilderness.
Wilbur Rehmann is leader of the quartet/quintet and he plays alto, tenor, soprano and baritone saxophones. His clean sound on alto is reminiscent of Paul Desmond but his big, full sound on tenor is as gutsy as Ben Webster or Coleman Hawkins. He is an original and creates music influenced by the high mountains and open plains of Montana. He has performed with Dizzy Gillespie, Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown, Arnett Cobb, the Big Sky Mudflaps and M.J. Williams.
