Silent Movie Night: Monday August 22

The International Summer Organ Festival’s popular SILENT MOVIE NIGHT is Monday, August 22 featuring organist Tom Trenney of Lincoln, Nebraska. He’ll play the soundtrack for one of the greatest movies of all time: The General (1926) starring Buster Keaton. The program begins at 7:30 p.m. with music by Bach, Ponchielli, Lemare, and Bizet, followed by a brief intermission and then with full darkness in the outdoor pavilion, the heralded film. Don’t miss this special night! Come early to get a seat. All seats are free, of course.
