Dennis James to Perform Chaplin's THE GOLD RUSH for Pacific Symphony Orchestra, 4/26Dennis James to Perform Chaplin's THE GOLD RUSH for Pacific Symphony Orchestra, 4/26
by BWW News Desk - Apr 1, 2015

Orange County, Calif.—March 31, 2015—Touring the world presenting silent films as they were meant to be seen (and heard!), virtuoso organist Dennis James returns to Pacific Symphony's Pedals and Pipes series to recreate the soundtrack to one of the greatest silent films of all time: Charlie Chaplin's “The Gold Rush.” In his skilled hands, the remarkable William J. Gillespie Concert Organ brings to life all of the drama, romance and hilarity of Chaplin's famous 1925 film, which plays on the big screen. Chaplin is seen in his iconic role as The Little Tramp, this time called The Lone Prospector, as he sets off to Alaska to hit it big in the Gold Rush. Whether boiling his own shoe to keep from starving or running from his delirious cabin mate who thinks he's a chicken, Chaplin's exemplary talent for physical comedy and comedic timing shines with the support of actors Georgia Hale, Mack Swain and Tom Murray. This concert takes place on Sunday, April 26, at 3 p.m. in the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall. Tickets are $10-$50; for more information or to purchase tickets call (714) 755-5799 or visit www.PacificSymphony.org. (more...)

The Pacific Symphony Presents ORGAN RECITAL: HECTOR OLIVERA, 3/8The Pacific Symphony Presents ORGAN RECITAL: HECTOR OLIVERA, 3/8
by BWW News Desk - Feb 22, 2015

The spectacular William J. Gillespie Concert Organ meets its match with this year's soloist, Hector Olivera, who returns for his second recital with Pacific Symphony's Pedals and Pipes series. Known for his passionate musicianship and interpretations of both classical and popular music, organ virtuoso Olivera opens the program with his own arrangements of Bach's vigorous Sinfonia from Cantata No. 29, and Piazzolla's somber “Oblivion.” Guilmant's Sonata No. 8 showcases the vast range of the organ and Mozart's Fantasia in F Minor reveals the terrifying power as well as the sublime beauty the organ is capable of producing. In addition, Lefébure-Wély's March in C Major is spirited in French style, and as a finale, Olivera brings his virtuosic improvisation skills to the stage, creating a new piece based on themes suggested by the audience. This recital takes place on Sunday, March 8, at 7:30 p.m. in the Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall. Tickets are $10-50; for more information or to purchase tickets call (714) 755-5799 or visit www.PacificSymphony.org. (more...)
