Mid-week Movie: Music of the Heart

The movie: Music of the Heart

When: Tuesday, 4/6/10

Time: Noon

Where: President's Dining Rm. in Bldg 19 - Go down the hall next to the bookstore. Turn right on the next hall. We are all the way to the end on your left.

This film shows the influence that one person's drive and vision can have on others. Meryl Streep plays real-life Roberta Guaspari who moves to Harlem as a single-mother and becomes a violin teacher. Working through racial and other barriers, Roberta creates an acclaimed music program in an area where many would have said it was impossible. Definitely a heart-warming movie.
