Charlie Chaplin at the Symphony

Saturday, October 13, 2012, 6 pm, Kiva Auditorium


Grant Cooper, conductor
Dan Kamin, buffoon soloist

A classical concert goes horribly wrong when an annoying mime battles conductor Grant Cooper for control of the orchestra.  Then the mime unmasks to introduce two timeless Chaplin comedies, Easy Street and The Immigrant, accompanied by terrific new symphonic scores by Maestro Cooper.  There’s no better way to experience the art of Charlie Chaplin than the way his original audiences did–on the big screen, with live musical accompaniment.  And there’s no better person to introduce his artistry than Dan Kamin, who trained Robert Downey, Jr. for his Oscar-nominated performance as the comedian, and created Johnny Depp’s comedy moves for Benny and Joon.  It’s an uproarious evening of comedy and music!
