Project Update


Everything You Always Wanted to Know About the Callicoon Center Band is currently at the rough cut stage.

25 hours of interviews have been shot including band leader, Jim Newton, local environmentalist, Bruce Furguson, teenage clarinetists, Stephanie and Kelly Anderson, Yvonne Schmit, member of the volunteer fire department and director of traffic, and former Callicoon Center Postmistress Nancy Matrafailo. We intend to follow both audience members and band members, seeking interviews with farmers, housewives, children, and weekenders, creating a full, rounded picture of the community the band serves. By showing a broad cross section of people across class, age, and residency, we will paint a deep, detailed portrait of the Callicoon Center Band, its audience, and its unique community status.

Trailer coming soon

We are currently applying for funding. To donate to Everything You Always Wanted to Know About the Callicoon Center Band, click here.
