MON 10/27: Silent Phantom, Cello, Rock

I was going to add the Elie Wiesel's "Kristallnacht" lecture tonight, but I have a feeling that it's a full crowd already...


MON 10/27

"The Phantom Of The Opera", "The Fall Of The House Of Usher"
at Coolidge Corner Theatre, 290 Harvard St, Brookline
$9.75 / $3 seniors, children

As part of "The Sounds of Silents" series, tonight includes one of the all-time classics of cinema. Every subsequent permutation (and rip-off) of this story owes a debt to Lon Chaney's version, and some feel he is still the best phantom. :The Fall Of The House Of Usher" is based on the Poe short story, and this silent film is supposed to be adequately weird and creepy. From what I've seen, Martin Marks is our local expert on silent film music; he'll provide live piano accompaniment with singing by Elisabeth Hon Hunt.

MON 10/27

Bernard Greenhouse, Masterclass
at Williams Hall, 30 Gainsborough St, Boston (New England Conservatory / Fens)

Bernard Greenhouse has been one of the leading cellists for decades, and he still plays everyday at age 92. I imagine a crotchety old master trying to school the kids.

MON 10/27

Thick Shakes, Triple Thick, The Throwaways
at Charlie's Kitchen, 10 Eliot St, Cambridge (Harvard Sq)
$5 / 21+

A trio of bands that'd be perfect for those of you who still want some more weekend-like fun. Have some garage/punk and beer.
