Buster Keaton the General – Featuring Chamberlab
February 28, 2015 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm| $10
ChamberLab, Tucson’s alt-classical concert series, roars into the historic Fox Theatre with a freshly composed all-original soundtrack to the Buster Keaton classic film, The General, performed live on stage by a full chamber orchestra while the movie screens.
ChamberLab composers Chris Black, Dante Rosano, Marco Rosano, and Tony Rosano have written new music for strings, brass, woodwinds, percussion, and at least one piano, bringing the excitement of Buster Keaton’s most well-known and heart-pounding film to life.
Thrill to all the train chases, cannon fires, collapsing bridges and over-the-top action as the North and the South grapple to control the destiny of America. ChamberLab is there through it all – with full artillery blazing!
ChamberLab is thrilled to perform at the Fox Theatre again, in part, because the outstanding acoustics play a part in making the audience feel like they are right in the thick of the action, but also screening this classic film in an historical setting certainly does Buster Keaton proud. ChamberLab is Tucson’s first alt-classical concert series, bringing new music from unlikely sources into strange venues for the delight of all.
