Pick of the Day: Halloween Movie Night — The Phantom of the Opera w/Organist Tom Trenney at Nashville Symphony

Halloween Movie Night: The Phantom of the Opera w/Organist Tom Trenney
Where: Schermerhorn Symphony Center
When: 8 p.m. Monday, Oct. 31

The Nashville Symphony is hosting a one-night-only screening of The Phantom of the Opera — the original silent film version from 1925 — just in time for Halloween. The archaic eeriness of the film is worth watching on its own, but what makes this presentation especially notable is its accompaniment by Tom Trenney, the organist and minister of music at First-Plymouth Congregational Church in Lincoln, Neb.

Trenney is nationally known for his improvisations on hymns, artwork and — for our listening pleasure — silent films, and he’ll perform tonight alongside the film’s screening. His ability to effortlessly capture emotions through music is an experience unto itself, and will surely be heightened with the iconic phantom — performed by the equally iconic Lon Chaney — as the backdrop.
