For this performance, the Piedmont Wind Symphony will accompany two Charlie Chaplin films, The Immigrant and The Adventurer, and perform a wonderful selection of Sousa marches. Did you know that John Philip Sousa and Charlie Chaplin were contemporaries? Or that Sousa was a huge Wagner fan? What about the fact that Chaplin actually conducted Sousa’s band in 1916 for a charity fundraiser? This promises to be a fun, energy-filled performance that you do not want to miss!
