The premiere broadcast will feature performances by Paul LaRoche, his daughter Nicole on the flute, his son Shane on the guitar, colorful dancers and drummers all interwoven with the string and brass musicians from the WASO under the direction of Conductor Dr. Christopher Stanichar. Musical selections performed include New Age/Worldbeat style performances of “Silent Star Night,” “Shelter from the Storm,” “Creators Prayer,” “Silent Grace,” “O Holy Night,” and “Star People”.
In between the musical selections, LaRoche will be interviewed by Pioneer Public TV’s general manager Les Heen as he talks about his upbringing in Worthington and his discovery at age 38 of his biological Lakota family on the Lower Brule Sioux Reservation in South Dakota. The discovery changed his life and led to the creation of the award-winning band Brulé, which tours the U.S. each year, performing at various venues for thousands of fans.
Viewers will be able to receive bonus track CD and DVD recordings of the historic concert as a thank you gift for making a contribution to member supported Pioneer Public Television. For more information, contact Pioneer at 1-800-726-3178 or at firstname.lastname@example.org.
