Music for Silent Film tonight at Randolph Macon

The Snark Ensemble presents "The Sounds of Slapstick" this evening at Randolph-Macon College in Ashland.

The Snark Ensemble are an instrumental group that performs new music to silent film, responding to and amplifying the events taking place on screen.

“The six-member group sounds like a New Orleans jazz combo out on a lark; the melodies slide and lumber during melodramatic moments and zing merrily when accompanying visual shtick.”
— Nelson Pressley, The Washington Post

The performance will take place at 8:00 p.m. in St. Ann’s Performing Arts Building. This event is free and open to the public.
