About

The Theatre Organ Society of Delaware celebrates the 100th-Anniversary of F.W. Murnau’s haunting tale ‘Nosferatu’ with a once-in-a-lifetime performance.  Organist Brett Miller will perform music pieces based on Hans Erdmann’s original 1922 score.  The original score has since been lost (destroyed), however, parts of it can be found in old 1920s German music books.  This is not only your chance to celebrate the 100th-anniversary but experience it as if you were living in 1922.

After the film, organist Brett Miller will stay for a Q&A.

About the organist, Brett Miller was a finalist in the American Theatre Organ Society’s Young Organist Competition and has been performing for the past ten years over the country specializing in the art of Silent film accompaniment.  He has been featured with the New Jersey  Capital Philharmonic at the Trenton War Memorial as well as opened for the sold-out appearance of George R.R. Martin, author of the “Game of Thrones”.  He was featured on PBS “State of the Arts” as well as in the Philadelphia Inquirer “We The People” for his organ accompaniment and preservation of silent films.  Along with his brother he founded “musicalpromise.org” , a musical initiative to help fund the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.  Brett has received the White House Student Film Festival honorable mention for a film featuring this community service work.  Prior to his present studying as an undergraduate student at the Eastman School of Music, Brett was involved in the Philadelphia Youth Orchestra as well as many school-related musical organizations and was awarded for these efforts. He is an active advocate for the education of the presentation of silent films and performing the scores to them “live to picture”.   Brett continues to be involved in various organizations including Empire Film and Media Ensemble, the Garden State Theatre Organ Society, the Rochester Theatre Organ Society, the American Theatre Organ Society, and the Historic Pipe Organs at Boardwalk Hall.

This program benefits the Theatre Organ Society of the Delaware Valley (TOSDV) Theatre Organ Restoration Fund. For additional information visit TOSDV.org; email info@tosdv.com.
