Joan of Arc To Perform World Premiere Commission At Chicago Book Expo 2011

Joan of Arc, the Chicago-based experimental music collective, will perform a world premiere, live new soundtrack to the Charlie Chaplin film His New Job, at the Chicago Book Expo 2011 next month.

His New Job is significant because it is the first of The Little Tramp's films to be produced at the old Essanay Studio, which is now St. Augustine's College.

The performance will take place on November 19 as part of the Book Expo, which this year will be a pop-up bookstore and literary spectacle in Chicago’s Uptown neighborhood. Tickets for Joan of Arc will be available at the door and in advance (though where to buy advance tickets hasn't been announced yet), and will set you back only $10.
