Orch enrolls ‘Freshman’

Hoffman to participate as honorary chairman

The Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra will accompany a restored print of Harold Lloyd’s 1925 silent comedy classic “The Freshman” in the group’s annual fundraising gala at UCLA’s Royce Hall.

Dustin Hoffman, a longtime event supporter, again will participate as honorary chairman. Turner Entertainment Co. president Roger Mayer and longtime orchestra board member Hanna Kennedy are co-chairs of the orchestra’s 13th annual gala.

The screening will feature a new print, with the addition of a scene that Lloyd cut in the 1960s that hasn’t been exhibited since.

The orchestra will accompany the film with a jazz score composed and conducted by Carl Davis.

“Freshman” was the second-most-successful comedy of the silent era, behind only Charlie Chaplin’s “The Gold Rush.” It follows the misadventures of a college student played by Lloyd, who considered it one of his favorite films.

The event will be held at UCLA’s Royce Hall, with a VIP party to follow. For further information, contact the orchestra at (213) 622-7001, ext. 275.
