Back in the 1920s, the most fun most folks had was going to the movies - the silent movies! And in the big movie palaces, says Fred McClanahan, those movies were accompanied by a great theater pipe organ. The organist, always a master of improvisation, provided much of the emotion and and excitement of the film with scene-appropriate music and sound effects.

You, your parents, your grandparents, and your kids have an opportunity to see and "hear" great silent films the way few of us ever have.

Please take my word for it, says McCanahan - This Will be a Fun Evening.

Sunday, September 19th, at 7 p.m., the North Louisiana Chapter of the American Guild of Organists in cooperation with the Robinson Film Center will present Tom Trenney in a Free concert in the Sanctuary of First United Methodist Church in Shreveport.

Tom will present a light concert of popular organ works followed by films featuring Laurel and Hardy and Buster Keaton.

Tom will be playing the splendid 5-manual Moeller organ - - 5,000+ pipes! Just hearing this amazing instrument is a treat.
