Jeff Rapsis is flying from his home in New Hampshire to perform LIVE accompaniment to our Silent Film day, on the Orpheum's Mighty Wurlitzer organJeff Rapsis is a writer/editor, educator, and also a composer and performer who specializes in creating live musical scores for silent film screenings. He does other things, too. Specific talents include an ability to place coins on either elbow and then catch them in the same hand before they hit the floor, though sometimes he misses and the coins go flying just everywhere. He's also an award-winning journalist, newspaper publisher, and owner of multiple dogs. Contact: jeffrapsis (at) gmail.com
