Carnegie Hall’s 2015 Fall Film Series continues with the showing of “Seymour: An Introduction” on Monday, Oct. 12, at 7 p.m. In this wonderfully warm, witty, and intimate tribute from his friend, Ethan Hawke, Seymour shares unforgettable stories from his remarkable life.
Meet Seymour Bernstein: a beloved pianist, teacher and true inspiration. The film documents the career of a classical pianist who abandoned his rising career as a concert pianist at age 50 to retreat to a more modest, private life as a music educator and composer.
A “poignant guide to life” (Indiewire) and an engaging exploration on the dedication, perseverance, and fortitude essential to creating both art and a rewarding life, ”Seymour: An Introduction” will leave audiences uplifted and inspired.
Carnegie’s Film Series is presented at The Lewis Theatre on Court Street in historic downtown Lewisburg. Films are shown the second Monday of each month, September through November. Admission is $8 per person at the door. For more information on this or future films, visit www.carnegiehallwv.org.
