AVALON, CATALINA ISLAND - Silent films were not silent at all. Live musical accompaniment was provided by a house organist and in some cases, a full symphony orchestra. The Catalina Island Museum is bringing this unique experience to the Avalon Casino Theatre on Saturday, May 16th with its screening of The Phantom of the Opera. Grammy Award-winning conductor Richard Kaufman will lead a 30-piece symphony orchestra, soprano vocalist Lisa Vroman, and renowned organist Dennis James for a performance of the film’s original score.
