Set in Oregon in 1850, SEVEN BRIDES FOR SEVEN BROTHERS tells the story of Millie, a young bride living in the 1850s Oregon wilderness.

From the comedic genius of Charlie Chaplin’s Little Tramp to the musical versatility of Mozart, you are sure to enjoy symphonic cinema at its most exciting when the orchestra performs the Chaplin score to the live screening of his 1931 silent film City Lights. One of the greatest most aggressive of all Mozart’s works, the Symphony No. 38 (Prague) completes the program. Premiered in 1786, the Prague received such an enthusiastic response that the audience could not be quieted until Mozart responded with improvisations at the piano.
