Cantate Chamber Singers performs
Andrew Earle Simpson's new music for THE WIND (1928),
the classic film drama starring Lillian Gish,
scored for chorus, theater organ, and percussion
Sunday, Nov. 8, 5:00 PM
Weinberg Center for the Performing Arts in Frederick, MD
The plot, in a nutshell:
Letty, a Virginia belle who moves to West Texas, likes Wirt, has to marry Lige, shoots Wirt, and realizes she loves Lige after all.
(Vimeo cast: Rachel Barham as Letty, James Rogers as Wirt, Jeff Kempskie as Lige. Title by Nicholas Ferrario)
Hear the composer accompany Cantate on the Weinberg Center's Wurlitzer theater organ, and see the live experience the Washington Post has called "a splendid match of music [and] image."
