Ghost Train Orchestra performs at the Bandshell as part of Celebrate Brooklyn!, presented by BRIC in partnership with the Prospect Park Alliance. For the latest information, including weather updates, set times, seating configurations, and FAQs, please visit the BRIC website.
Alloy Orchestra’s latest score enlivens Rudolf Valentino’s final outing: The Son of the Sheik (1926), a vivid tale of passion, betrayal, and redemption, leaves no doubt that Valentino (who died suddenly on the eve of its release) is the silver screen’s greatest lover, and that Alloy is still “the best in the world at accompanying silent films.” (Roger Ebert) Ghost Train Orchestra digs deep into Harlem and Chicago jazz of the 1920s.
Gates open an hour before the performance unless otherwise noted, and all performances are rain or shine.
