Buy Tickets Online Safety Last! (1923) is a classic romantic comedy starring Harold Lloyd. The film was highly successful and critically hailed, and cemented Lloyd’s status as a major figure in early motion pictures. It includes one of the most iconic and famous images of the silent film era as Lloyd dangles, clutching the hands of a large clock, outside a skyscraper. It is considered on to the great film comedies of all time. This great film will be accompanied by world renowned organist, Steven Ball, Organist and Director of Outreach for the world’s largest pipe organ located at Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, NJ.
In Safety Last!, Lloyd plays a small town boy trying to make his fortune in the big city so that he can send for his girl back home. In famous Lloyd fashion, this leads to crazy situations as a department store clerk, hilarious physical comedy and the now famous stunts.
Ball occupies a rather unique place in the musical world of the organ. In addition to being a Fulbright Scholar, he is part of a small number of artists proficient in the genre of the theater organ ever to have achieved a doctoral degree in music, and the first to have ever done so with a degree in organ performance. Widely recognized for his scholarship both with classical improvisation as well as the art of silent film composition and accompaniment, he has traveled and performed extensively in both the United States and abroad including concerts in The Netherlands, Germany, Belgium, France, Portugal, Ireland, England and Switzerland.
The Music House presents Hitting the High Notes!, our 1st Annual Fall Fundraiser!
We are excited and honored to have Miriam Pico and David Chown as our Honorary Chairs and our featured entertainment. Please join us for an evening of great music, great food, great friends and great fun all benefiting this very special place.
One of the challenges of all non-profit museums is providing a quality, affordable experience. We all continue to improve the quality of our displays and maintain our current collection. The less glamorous are the expenses necessary to provide these. The operational expenses are the glue that hold the Music House together and are also the most difficult to find grant support for. From facility maintenance and improvements to heating and cooling to office supplies…without funds to support these things we could not provide the quality experience that we have become known for. There is a reason that we were just selected as one of the top 15 museums in Michigan!
The accolades for these two Michigan artists could go on and on. Miriam is local legend who has been chosen multiple times by area voters as Northern Express’ “Best Solo Artist” and Traverse Magazine’s “Red Hot Best Singer/Songwriter”. David is known locally and nationally for his amazing piano playing. He is a performer and educator with a degree in Piano and Jazz Studies. David also is the owner of Lookout Music Productions.
When you combine these two gifted artists they create magic. You don’t want to miss them!
This is fundraiser for the Music House Museum. We are a 501 (3) Non-profit Organization. A large portion of your ticket costs will be tax-deductible. Tax information will be provided at the event.
