NEXT EVENT: JASON ROBERTS ACCOMPANIES "STEAMBOAT BILL, JR."
MMPAF Adoration of the Magi Concert

The silent film era lasted only a little over a decade. During this time, when recordings could not yet be synchronized to video, organists and pianists cultivated the art of silent film accompaniment. Although in large theaters scores were composed for orchestras to play, most often film accompaniments were improvised.

The film will feature live improvised accompaniment on St. Bart's famous pipe organ by Jason Roberts, St. Bart's brilliant Associate Organist.

A native of Lakeville, CT, John D'Ercole's music education extended from middle school to Berklee College of Music, where he focused on traditional jazz and contemporary music. Being greatly inspired by Andrés Segovia, John began transcribing classical works to the bass guitar and has since developed an extensive repertoire of works not normally associated with this instrument. His performances are in demand around the US.
