The Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra

Old First Concerts

The Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra, a chamber quintet from Louisville Colorado, has a world-wide reputation for recreating the art of silent film music as it was played in movie theaters of the day. They compiled and performed their first film score in 1994, and since then have scored over 140 silent films for performances and recordings.


This is what SF/Arts curator Jesse Hamlin had to say about The Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra :

Celebrated for compiling and performing silent film scores, the Colorado quintet—pianist Rodney Sauer, violinist Britt Swenson, cellist David Short, trumpeter Dawn Kramer, clarinetist Brian Collins—brings forgotten “photoplay music” back to life.
