According to an article in The Daily News, the Genesee Symphony Orchestra is dipping its toes into the world of playing live music with movies.

Music Director Shade Zajac says that they are trying it out first on their holiday concert on December 10th – with the animated holiday classic “The Snowman” and its music by Howard Blake.

 

This is not a metaphor for your soul being transported to another realm – I’ve got physical transportation on my mind.

Now that it is spring, I’m back into biking to work pretty much every day. I’m happy to be out and riding again, even though I did appreciate the chance to read on the bus on my commute this winter. The seasonal change in my travel habits – along with thinking about how we get around as I prepare to host an event for Reconnect Rochester about transportation and sustainability – reminded me of some of my favorite music for bikes – and trains – and even cars.

Musicians of Rochester: Philip Carli

Dec 6, 2016

Now one of the world’s most-acclaimed silent movie pianists, Philip Carli saw his first silent films at Disneyland in California. It was love at first sight. These silent films inspired him to create little films of his own as a kid, and experiment with accompanying them on the piano.
