    Free - Donations for West Marin School Music Program gratefully accepted.

    Local resident and music teacher, David Whitney is a huge fan of documentaries of soulful musicians, he will share some of the very rare music documentaries he has accumulated over the years. David has gone to great lengths to acquire some stellar movies never shown in a theater, on TV, or released to the public, for one reason or another... These films have won numerous awards from major film festivals all over the globe, were made by world-renown film- makers, but have never seen the light of day! So, in the interest of building community through music, David invites the community to “Music Documentary Night” at The Dance Palace Church Space.
