7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
This special event is a collaboration with the Montpelier Chamber Orchestra and Music COMP. Composer Matt LaRocca and I have been working with local students to compose original music to accompany three silent films. The MCO will perform the original scores. The GMFF will project the films: “La Glu,” a 1906 short by Alice Guy Blache with music by Anna Halladay; an excerpt from Metropolis, the pioneering 1927 science fiction film by Fritz Lang, with score by Drew Frankenberg; and and my own music to an excerpt from The Adventures of Prince Achmed, a 1926 animated fairytale by Lotte Reiniger. The program will also include a concert performance of Music for Movies by Aaron Copland.
