The Sheffield Youth Orchestra, with conductor George Morton, are delighted to invite you to our 'Silent Shorts' event, where the orchestra will perform to two silent films.
'An Eccentric Burglary' (1905) was made by the Sheffield Photo Company and is an early example of the use of 'tricks' in film.
'Bradford Under Snow' (c1910) will be accompanied by the premiere performance of a brand new soundtrack, composed by Finlay Stafford (BBC Proms Inspire Composer, 2015).
Saturday 24th September
