The Clarion at Brazosport College
with the Brazosport Symphony Orchestra
Charlie Chaplin at the Symphony
classical concert goes horribly wrong when an annoying
for control of the Brazosport Symphony. Then, in the second
act, the mime unmasks and breaks his silence to introduce two classic Charlie
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
performance as the comedian, and created Johnny Depp's
comedy moves for Benny and Joon.
It's an uproarious evening of comedy and music!
