Travel with CCS to the golden era of silent films with a live performance of Andrew Earle Simpson’s original score accompanying a screening of famed comedian Buster Keaton’s hilarious – but silent – romp One Week. Ideal for audiences of all ages, One Week chronicles the comedic misadventures of a newly-wed couple’s attempt to build a DIY house they were given as a wedding gift – all in 22 minutes.
Join us as we celebrate CCS with a rollicking performance, One Week, with an original orchestral score by acclaimed silent film composer Andrew Earle Simpson. This evening will include a conversation with composer Andrew Earle Simpson. This event is created with our grown-up audience members in mind. Plan to arrive 30 minutes before the concert to enjoy a cocktail and to get to know our artists and their instruments at our instrument petting zoo!
5 PM: Cocktails and Instrument Petting Zoo in the Lobby
