"Saturday Night Waltz"

We're proud to announce our latest music video: "Saturday Night Waltz" from Aaron Copland's Rodeo!

The film shoot itself was simultaneously technological yet "rustic." We relished the pastoral setting: 4:30am wake up calls, the barn with its ethereal early-morning light, the accompaniment of the roosters, and the delicious meals prepared from food grown on the farm (but not the chickens — we're both vegetarian!). But perhaps the highlight was working with a video drone... our first experience with quadcopters proved to be both rewarding and challenging as our drone operator may or may not have crashed the device while filming, leaving us with precious few ariel shots to work with!

Many thanks to everyone at the Olympic Music Festival for their assistance and support, and happy 115th birthday to Aaron Copland!

Join us under the stars at the Wine Country Film Festival!

You’re sitting in a vineyard under the stars with wine in hand, attending…
… none other than a live Anderson & Roe performance and a world premiere film event!

How did this come to be?

In 2012, we dove headfirst into our most ambitious and exciting project to date — a grand culmination of love, labor, and lost limbs (well, toenails): The Rite of Spring: A Musical Odyssey. The project propelled our imagination to new heights and took us filming all over America, and three crazy years later, we're thrilled to announce the music video has been selected to receive its world premiere as a highlight film in the 2015 Wine Country Film Festival in Sonoma!

As a featured event, this won't be like any other premiere. Instead of sandwiching our movie amongst a host of other films in a stuffy theater in the middle of the afternoon, we'll be screening outdoors under the stars in a vineyard at the Valley of the Moon Cinema on Deerfield Ranch Winery. We'll begin with a half-hour duo performance on a beautiful concert grand piano, generously donated by Steinway, while prepping for some of the provocative themes presented in Stravinsky’s music. After which: the world premiere of the entire film on a huge movie screen (a dream come true!), a clip from Chronicling the ‘Rite’ (our behind-the-scenes featurette), and a Q&A session.

It's sure to be a grand celebration! Come early to visit the gourmet food trucks... and we plan to party hard afterwards. In fact, we encourage you to make a day (or weekend getaway!) of it.

  • Saturday, September 19
  • Food + wine trucks open at 6:00p.m.
  • Event begins at 7:00p.m.

We hope to see you there, with a glass of wine in each hand. ;) 

A&R in the Press Democrat

With their electrifying interpretations of classical music, it could be said that Greg Anderson and Elizabeth Joy Roe four-handedly set the keyboard on fire. Literally.

Just a snippet from the fantastic article in the Press Democrat, previewing next week’s exciting upcoming premiere of The Rite of Spring: A Musical Odyssey at the Wine Country Film Festival on Sept. 19! Check out our latest blog post for more details on the event.
