As we approach the Silent Film on May 23 at Royce Hall, buzz about this great event is beginning to hit the media and we don’t want you to miss a beat!
Today (May 14), Larry Mantle will be interviewing Silent Film Co-Chairman Roger L. Mayer live on KPPC’s AirTalk. Tune in to 89.3 FM at 11:40 am. Or if you’re reading this tonight and missed the broadcast, you can listen to it streaming on KPPC’s AirTalk online.
Elsewhere on the radio, an interview with Roger Mayer on his affection for film preservation and what this project means to him will be running on 1260 am KGIL and KJAZZ 88.1 fm in the upcoming week, and will be available on both of their websites. You can hear a portion of this interview on the LACO podcasts.
This weekend’s issue of the LA Times will feature an article on composer and conductor Timothy Brock, who will lead LACO in the world premiere performance of his original score to Buster Keaton’s The Cameraman at the event. Brock will also conduct LACO in a performance of Alexander Rannie’s score to Alice’s Wild West Show, a rarely seen 1924 Disney short.
Finally, be sure to pick up the current issue of Los Angeles magazine to see the beautiful full page ad for the Silent Film (and on the opposite page, a very nice ad for this weekend’s Great Romantics concert).
We can’t wait, and are looking forward to seeing you on Sunday, May 23!
