Charlie Chaplin at the Symphony featuring Dan Kamin

Saturday, October 28, 2017, 7:00 pm & Sunday, October 29, 2017, 2:00 pm

Hobby Center, Zilkha Hall

Our season opens with a bang as The Classical Clown battles conductor
Libi Lebel for control of the TMC Orchestra.  Then the clown unmasks to
introduce two timeless Chaplin comedies, Easy Street and The Immigrant, accompanied by terrific new symphonic scores.

 Dan Kamin trained Robert Downey, Jr. for his Oscar-nominated performance in Chaplin and created Johnny Depp's comedy moves for Benny and Joon.  Don’t miss his uproarious blend of classical music and classic comedy!
