“I had to make some decisions, whether I wanted to go with the classic ragtime stuff or do a 20s jazz band kind of thing, but I decided to straight ahead classical… to write something for the orchestra.” Composer Dean Kluesner
WDAV’s Matt Rogers talks with Charlotte Civic Orchestra's conductor Geoffrey Whitehead and local composer Dean Kluesner about the performance, “A Symphony and a Movie.”
For the symphony portion of the event, the CCO will perform Brahm's Symphony No.2 in D Major. The movie will be the 1921 silent film Never Weaken, staring Harold Lloyd. The orchestra will accompany the showing of the movie with Dean Kluesner's new music, written specifically for the film.
