The Elgin Symphony Orchestra (ESO), Chamber Music on the Fox (CMOTF) and the Gail Borden Public Library (GBPL) present A Celebration of Music from the Golden Age of Cinema & Radio Sept. 26 – Oct. 9, an exploration of the work of composer and conductor Bernard Herrmann, and filmmaker, actor and composer Charlie Chaplin, brilliant contemporaries who left their marks in radio and film. 

The Trouble with Harry, directed by Alfred Hitchcock and scored by Bernard Herrmann, will be shown at the Gail Borden Public Library on Sept. 26, Herrmann biographer Steven Smith will lead a guest lecture about Herrmann on Oct. 2 at GBPL, and Crime Classic, an old time radio drama with Radio Players West and the ESO trombone section will be performed on Oct. 4 at the Kimball Street Theater, presented by Chamber Music on the Fox. 

Steven Smith will return to GBPL on Oct. 5 to discuss the musical score to Charlie Chaplin's silent film, City Lights, which Chaplin himself composed. The film, which has received many accolades and awards, will be shown with the ESO performing the score live on Oct. 7-Oct. 9.
