JASON ROBERTS ACCOMPANIES
THREE SHORT COMEDIES OF BUSTER KEATON
Friday, November 3, 2017 at 7:30 pm
Jason Roberts, St. Bartholomew’s Associate Director of Music and Organist, will provide live, improvised accompaniment on St. Bart's famous Aeolian-Skinner pipe organ to three short comedies of Buster Keaton.
Convict 13 (1920) features Keaton as an innocent (and untalented) golfer who is mistaken for a convict. In The Boat (1921), Buster and his family sail into the Pacific Ocean in a homemade vessel that is barely seaworthy. And in Day Dreams (1922), Buster tries to win the hand of his girl by “making it big” in the city.
Experience these films as their first audiences would have: with live accompaniment, and hear St. Bart’s enormous pipe organ in a context you may not have heard before!
