​The Clarion at Brazosport College 

with the Brazosport Symphony Orchestra


Charlie Chaplin at the Symphony

​​A classical concert goes horribly wrong when an annoying mime battles conductor John Ricarte for control of the Brazosport Symphony.  Then, in the second act, the mime unmasks and breaks his silence to introduce two classic Charlie Chaplin comedies, Easy Street and The Immigrant, accompanied by terrific new symphonic scores.  You’ll be amazed by how timely the films are, with their unflinching look at poverty, despair, homelessness and urban violence—not to mention the connection with the current worldwide immigrant crisis.  Yet despite their dark themes the films are hilariously funny and deeply optimistic, presenting a vision of the world not only as it is but as it might be

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!
