The Coolidge Corner Theatre and Berklee College of Music present a rare screening of Sergei Einstein's 1925 silent film masterpiece Battleship Potemkin, featuring a newly commissioned live score composed by professor Sheldon Mirowitz and his students in the Film Scoring Department, under the guidance of department chair Dan Carlin. This lively event is the third collaboration between the Coolidge and Berklee as part of the Sounds of Silents film series.
In 1924, the Russian revolutionary leadership requisitioned Sergei Eisenstein to make a new film celebrating the 20th anniversary of the famous Potemkin uprising. Vladimir Lenin had hailed this revolt as the first proof that Russian troops could be counted on to join the proletariat in overthrowing the Czarist regime. Battleship Potemkin has become one of the touchstones in film history and one of the landmarks of silent cinema. Don't miss this one-night-only chance to experience this powerful story on the Coolidge's giant silver screen with a live orchestral performance conducted and performed live by Berklee students.

The show is codirected by Mark Simos and John Stevens.
The Berklee Vintage Vocals Ensemble recreates the great jazz vocal group music of the 20th century. Music from the 1930s (Boswell Sisters, Mills Brothers) to the 1960s (Lambert, Hendricks, and Ross) is sung in its authentic style. Associate professor David Scott has been awarded a Berklee faculty fellowship and a Berklee recording grant to transcribe, arrange, record, and perform this music, some of which has been published by Hal Leonard Publishing.
