Philippe Quint in Charlie Chaplin’s Smile: Music in the Mountains Festival Orchestra Concert

Sunday, Jul 23, 2023 5:00 pm

Fort Lewis College Community Concert Hall • 1000 Rim Drive, Durango, CO

Event Description

Special guest Philippe Quint joins Maestro Guillermo Figueroa and our Festival Orchestra for a wonderful evening of music featuring the works of Charlie Chaplin!

Did you know that Charlie Chaplin, one of the greatest silent movie actors and most iconic figures of the early film industry and was also a talented composer?

To celebrate Chaplin’s 134th birthday (he was born on April 16, 1889), we present Philippe Quint’s critically acclaimed multimedia program. Inspired by the violinist’s successful 2019 album Chaplin’s Smile (Warner Classics), the program has already appeared in the US, UK, Germany, Poland, Russia, Israel, Romania, Switzerland, and Norway.

Quint’s unique arrangements of songs from Chaplin’s most celebrated films (Modern Times, City Lights, Monsieur Verdoux, The Kid, Limelight, and A King in New York) are interspersed with rare footage of the actor, along with still images and video clips from his films. The program also features music by composers who influenced Chaplin’s musical style – Brahms, Debussy, Stravinsky, and Gershwin.

For accessible seating needs or additional assistance please call the festival office to assist you with your tickets at 970-385-6820.
