Muscatine, IOWA – According to the city officials, the performance is free and open to the public.
The free performance will take place in the Muscatine Art Center’s Music Room at 3 p.m. on May 8.
According to the city officials, Red Cedar Chamber Music’s Directors and core ensemble, violinist Miera Kim and cellist Carey Bostian, present the third in a series of programs featuring early silent films and magic lantern slides accompanied by chamber music.
The core ensemble is joined by flutist Claudia Anderson and guitarist John Dowdall in accompanying these rare films. Historian Michael Zahs will narrate the program.
Red Cedar produced Brinton Silent Film Project in 2015, and followed that up a year later with Music and Magic Lanterns.
Each project featured multiple commissions, some of which are present in today’s Brinton Surprise program.
In all, 10 new works have been commissioned to accompany and enhance the incredible films and slides selected from the collection.
