Pick of the Day: Charlie Chaplin Films with Organ Accompaniment

Posted By on Fri, Jan 28, 2011 at 5:18 AM

Dorothy Papadakos: Charlie Chaplin Films feat. Live Pipe Organ Accompaniment
Where: Christ Church Cathedral, 900 Broadway
When: Fri., Jan. 28, 6 & 8 p.m.
$10; $5 for students

To be such a massive beast — it encompasses some 3,370 pipes — the Lively-Fulcher pipe organ at Christ Church Cathedral is an instrument capable of great delicacy and playfulness. That should make it a fine vehicle for acclaimed organist Dorothy Papadakos’ improvised accompaniment to three silent Charlie Chaplin classics dating back to 1917: ”The Cure,” “The Immigrant” and “The Adventurer."

Papadakos, a member of the Grammy-winning Paul Winter Consort and the organist for 13 years at the world’s largest Gothic cathedral, New York’s Cathedral of St. John the Divine, has performed this program at venues ranging from the Moscow International Arts Festival to San Francisco’s Grace Cathedral; her first appearance here since 2004 makes this even more of an event. Call 255-7729 for more information.
