Three Charlie Chaplin Shorts Set to Live Music Tonight at Celebrate Brooklyn!

We've come upon another great perennial summer event in Brooklyn; Celebrate Brooklyn's  silent "Movies & Music" night up at the bandshell.  This is great stuff and the kids love it too.  So bring the youngins! 7:30 p.m.

Here's how the Celebrate Brooklyn website spins it:
Three of Chaplin’s greatest shorts—The Rink (1916), The Immigrant (1916), and The Adventurer (1917)—will come alive as never before with new scores by the highly sought after UK based composer CARL DAVIS (London Philharmonic Orchestra), performed live by the dashing 16-piece pickup NY chamber orchestra THE KNIGHTS. Brooklyn born Davis returns home to conduct. With the charming local violinist and singer CHRISTINA COURTIN, whose fearless delivery recalls “performers as diverse as Janis Joplin and Antony.” (Time Out)
