Florida Orchestra to play live music for Chaplin movie, video game show

The Florida Orchestra will provide a "live soundtrack" for two special concerts next spring that marry the big screen with live music. First is Charlie Chaplin: The Gold Rush, with the orchestra playing along to the 1925 classic silent film about the antics of Little Tramp (it also celebrates the 100th anniversary of the character that debuted in 1914). Performances will be Feb. 28 at the Tampa Theatre and March 1 at the Palladium in downtown St. Petersburg. Tickets are $35. For rePLAY — A Symphony of Heroes, the orchestra will play themes from popular video games, including Final Fantasy, the Legend of Zelda, Elder Scrolls, Halo, Metal Gear and many others as movie screens bring the games to life. Tickets are $35-$45 for two April 19 shows at the Mahaffey Theater in St. Petersburg. For both concerts, go to floridaorchestra.org for details and ticket information. — Sharon Kennedy Wynne
