Silent Movie at Bethany Church

 Bethany Church will present a silent movie titled “Wings.”

"Wings" was produced in 1927 and is the first movie to win an Academy Award for best picture.  It is an historic fiction presenting a fictional recollection of actual events from WWI, including the epic Battle of Saint-Mihiel.  WWI took place one hundred years ago, and the presentation of this film is a fitting honor those men and women who lived and served through that time.

Interpreting the movie with his talents on the pipe organ will be Quincy’s own Peter Krasinski.  Peter began his career playing the organ at Bethany Church but has gone on to perform in many of the world’s most famous cathedrals and music halls.  He has travelled around the world and has won competitions in many areas.  His specialty, though, is the improvisation he utilizes when he performs for the silent movies. 

According to Krasinski, he reviews the movie and tailors the music for each scene to blend it with the film. No two performances are the same.  He has recently performed "Wings" for the Harvard Organ Society, the Massachusetts International Festival of the Arts, the British Soldiers Fund, Westford Academy and the Chevalier Theater Organ Society

Admission will be free, donations accepted for the Bethany Church Organ Restoration Fund.  Following the Movie and Performance there will be a collation and an opportunity to speak with the organist and church members.

If you are unable to attend but would like to contribute to Bethany’s Organ Restoration Fund, you may mail a check to Bethany Church with the notation “Organ Restoration Fund.”  Donations received in time will be listed on a program note.
