Making Music for Silent Film

[acf field=”date”] | [acf field=”venue”] | [acf field=”special”]

A hands-on workshop for families exploring how sound and music help to tell the story in film.

Treat yourself and the family to a wonderful afternoon in the company of Buster Keaton, one of the original screen rebels! In this workshop, we’ll explore how sound is used to tell stories in silent film, accompanied by Lillian Henley on piano.

For children age 8-12 and their parents. No instruments or experience necessary!
