The Mont Alto Motion Picture Orchestra, a chamber quintet from Colorado, was in town for
the Kansas Silent Film Festival on February 28-29. As part of the festival, they stopped by
the Kansas Public Radio live performance studio with Tracey Goessel author of the definitive biography
of silent film star Douglas Fairbanks, and Bill Shaffer, producer/director at KTWU TV. The group played excerpts
from the scores to the silent films Leap Year and Robin Hood, which were featured at this year’s festival.
