Saturday June 1st 8:00pm
Henderson Symphony directed by Taras Krysa performs the musical score to Charlie Chaplin's silent film: "Gold Rush" (1925) in real time along with a projection of the movie. Chaplin composed the music when editing the film slightly in 1942: taking out the title cars and adding narration. This performance features the 1942 musical score adapted for the original silent 1925 version. The audience will enjoy watching the movie projected onto a huge screen above the orchestra as they perform the film score.
