Join us for a wine-and-cheese reception, followed by a screening of the documentary Twenty Feet From Stardom and a brief panel discussion.

Millions know their voices, but no one knows their names. In his compelling new film Twenty Feet From Stardom, award-winning director Morgan Neville shines a spotlight on the untold true story of the backup singers behind some of the greatest musical legends of the 21st century. Triumphant and heartbreaking in equal measure, the film is both a tribute to the unsung voices who brought shape and style to popular music and a reflection onthe conflicts, sacrifices and rewards of a career spent harmonizing with others.
