With no musical scoring in the early days of film, movie audiences in the 1890s through the 1920s were treated to live musicians who supplied the drama, emotion and entertainment. The Silent Film Orchestra will perform the scores to classic films from this era. Some composers include: Scott Joplin, Irving Berlin, W.C. Handy and Adolf Minot.  Open to all instrumentalists, beginner to advanced. 

Please note: Senior division instrumentalists are asked to rank their choices on the application. The specific classes that are offered will be based on this ranking and students will be placed in the most appropriate group after a placement audition. Placement audition instructions will be sent after enrollment. Some classes with low enrollment may not be offered, but each student will be placed in one of their selected classes.
