2017 POPS: Live at the Movies!

POPS: Charlie Chaplin – City Lights
Silent Movie Night 
The Idaho State-Civic Symphony has outdone themselves with this year’s POPS concert. Prepare to be captivated by the nostalgia and magic of the silent movies!  Most people are surprised to learn that Charlie Chaplin was not only a Tragi-comic superstar of the 20s and 30s era, but he was also an accomplished composer. The entire music score of this “Movie night at the symphony” was composed by none other than Charlie Chaplin. Silent movies were accompanied by piano, organ or other sound machines, but the best and most highly acclaimed were accompanied by a full-fledged orchestra. Join the fun as our own symphony creates the music while the silent movie plays on a big screen above the orchestra in the Grand hall.  Critiques and historians of the silent movie era have called Chaplin’s “City Lights” – exquisite!
