Many years before Twilight and True Blood came a one of the greatest German expressionist horror films of its time, Nosferatu: a symphony of horror. On Halloween night only, October 31, 2013, the Arizona Pro Arte Orchestra conducted by Timothy Verville will present a world premiere performance of music by Dvoraki, Brahms and Wagner to this remarkable black and white silent movie.
Nosferatu: a symphony of horrors was directed by F. W. Murnan with screen writer Henrik Galeen, the actors were Max Schreck, Greta Schroder and Ruth Landshoff. This 1922 film combined with the amazing, high caliber musical performance of the Arizona Pro Arte Orchestra is a combination that is a recipe for a truly memorable Halloween Night.
Connie Jarhmarkt, the choir director for the Unitarian Universalist Congregation of Phoenix will be in the orchestra pit playing a haunting violin. Connie told this reporter that she was excited to be a part of this special presentation. She had been reminded of a few Halloween nights when she and a group of musicians would play behind this very film in her driveway, entertaining the neighborhood with this special combination of live music to an old classic horror film.
