Of Note: Charlie Chaplin at the Symphony
The next Fort Smith Symphony concert "It's Time for Chaplin," includes a live performace of a Chaplin score set against his iconic film City Lights.
"Live is always better than recorded," explains John Jeter, the symphony's music director. "There's a certain aural stimulation you get when the music is live that you don't have with a soundtrack. It can be a really interesting balance between watching a film and attending a concert."
For a little context, show up early for a pre-concert talk from Chaplin scholar Frank Scheide. "It's Time for Chaplin" takes place at 7:30 p.m. Sat., Jan. 19, inside the ArcBest Performing Arts Center.
