PAST: FILM + MUSIC: Screening of "A Christmas Carol" from 1923 with Live Music, Premiere, this SAT, Dec 18th at the NGA 1:00pm - 1:45pm, Free

Saturday, December 18th
1:00pm - 1:45pm

A holiday music and film event features a 1923 adaptation of the Charles Dickens classic and an ensemble of strings, bells, and voice to accompany it. This is also the premiere of a musical score by Kim Allen Kluge, who "was inspired by the ghostlike images caused by the film's deterioration and these luminous effects contribute to Scrooge's transformation." Kluge's score, rooted in Victorian melodies, "compliments the otherworldliness of the visuals."
