NORWICH – Sunday’s performance at The Chenango County Council of the Arts is sure to leave its “mark” on Norwich.
Rick Benjamin’s Paragon Orchestra will perform the original, Spanish-flavored score to accompany the silent film classic “The Mark of Zorro” at the West Main Street theater at 3 p.m. this Sunday.
In today’s world of big budget blockbusters, CGI effects and Dolby Surround Sound, why go see a 1920s flick?
“There are a bunch of great reasons,” said Paragon’s Rick Benjamin. “First, silent cinema with live orchestra is a rare and great form of entertainment. Norwich will be the only place on earth that day where ‘Zorro’ will be seen with a live orchestra playing its original 1920 score,” he noted.
