Scott Foppiano Accompanying Buster Keaton's "One Week" at Plummer Auditorium

We have another exciting event happening on Sunday, January 22, 2012
at 2:30 PM.

OCTOS Presents Scott Foppiano

Scott Foppiano returns to Plummer Auditorium and will accompany the
1920 silent comedy by Buster Keaton - "One Week"

Additionally, prize winning student Scott Steadman will make a guest
appearance on the piano. There will be a nice selection of music
played as well.

In this classic silent, Buster and Sybil exit a chapel as newlyweds.
Among the gifts is a portable house you easily put together in one
week. It doesn't help that Buster's rival for Sybil switches the
numbers on the crates containing the house parts.

Come join your Theatre Organ loving friends for a fun Sunday
afternoon. You can order your tickets online at http://octos.org

About Scott Foppiano

Scott Foppiano discovered his love for the sound of the Mighty
Wurlitzer theatre pipe organ at Memphis' Orpheum Theatre while in High
School and soon began playing overtures and intermissions. Following high
school he entered the NC School of the Arts in Charlotte NC and
trained as a classical organist and musician. Private study with
renowned theatre and classical organist Tom Hazelton further developed
his symphonic style.

Critically acclaimed and sought after as a recitalist, theatre
organist and silent film accompanist, he has played and recorded some
of the greatest classical and theatre pipe organs in the United
States, Canada and Europe. To date he has six solo organ CDs with
future projects pending. In addition, he has been a featured artist
for regional and national conventions of the American Guild of
Organists, the Organ Historical Society and the American Theatre Organ
Society. SCOTT FOPPIANO was awarded ATOS Theatre Organist of the Year
in 2006.
