Mike Ohman, associate director of the School of Music, will provide live organ accompaniment to “College,” a 1927 black-and-white slapstick film starring Buster Keaton. The film will be presented as it was meant to be seen, with complementary music from the organ.

“College” focuses on Keaton’s brainy freshman, who falls head-over-heels in love with a beautiful coed. When she is wooed by a handsome athlete, Keaton hits the field to show his mettle with hilarious results.
