Buster Keaton was a comedy king of the Silent Film era. The General is considered one of the greatest films ever made, and your Anchorage Symphony screens this masterwork premiering a new score by Eric Beheim. This film finds hapless Southern railroad engineer Johnny Gray (Buster Keaton) facing off against Union soldiers during the American Civil War. When Johnny's fiancée, Annabelle Lee (Marion Mack), is accidentally taken away while on a train stolen by Northern forces, Gray pursues the soldiers, using various modes of transportation in comic action scenes that highlight Keaton's boundless wit and dexterity.

Our tribute to the men and women who have served in our nation’s armed forces begins with the world premiere of In Selfless Service... written by retired Army Band Chief Arranger, Paul Murtha. In remembrance of the 100th Anniversary of WWI, Aaron Copland’s poignant Quiet City will accompany a photo montage of “The Great War.” WWII images commemorating the 75th anniversary of mankind’s most widespread conflict will be underscored by the third movement of Vaughan Williams’ Symphony No. 5.
