Todd Wilson, organ

Overview

At a Glance
Celebrate Halloween with this classic 1923 silent film ... with the accompaniment improvised live by acclaimed organist Todd Wilson. Quasimodo (Lon Chaney Sr. ) an inarticulate, deformed human being who is the bell ringer of the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris, sacrifices his life to save Esmeraldo (Patsy Ruth Miller), a Gypsy girl who once befriended him, from the hunchback's evil master. The fully improvised accompaniment features Severance Hall's mighty Norton Memorial Organ, considered one of the finest concert organs ever built. 


With the film projected on a large screen
above the Severance Hall stage and 
film music played and improvised on
Severance Hall's Norton Memorial Organ.
