ABOUT THE MONT ALTO MOTION PICTURE ORCHESTRA

Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra

Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra will perform the score LIVE!

The Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra is a five piece chamber ensemble that revives the repertoire of silent film orchestras. Using historic libraries of music, and selecting and fitting a piece of music for each scene in the film, Mont Alto compiles vibrant and emotional scores using the original techniques of silent film orchestras.

“The results are often breathtakingly beautiful and always in the strict service of the film on the screen.” (Dave Kehr, The New York Times.)

Mont Alto was formed in Colorado in 1989, and has scored over 125 silent films, recording over 40 film scores for releases on DVD, Blu-Ray, and for showings on Turner Classic Movies. The Mont Alto Orchestra appears regularly at the San Francisco Silent Film Festival, the Telluride Film Festival, the TCM Classic Film Festival, the Denver Silent Film Festival, the Chautauqua Auditorium film series, and the Kansas Silent Film Festival.
