The Anvil Orchestra

There’s a new silent film accompanying group in town: The Anvil Orchestra! This ensemble features two members from the Alloy Orchestra, Terry Donahue and Roger C. Miller. Larry Dersch (Trinary System, AKA/COD, Concussion Ensemble) has agreed to be a part-time member when the full percussion array is required for action. The Anvil Orchestra will continue the silent film accompanying tradition of Alloy Orchestra, while undoubtedly adding its own spin to the proceedings. The group’s first performance was METROPOLIS at SNF NOSTOS in Athens, Greece, on Aug.28. Due to Covid and the CDC recommending no Americans go to Greece, this became a virtual concert. Two upcoming shows: AFI Silver Theater, Silver Spring, MD, Nov.6 and 7 (three films). Premier of our new score to Dziga Vertov’s “The History of the Civil War” at IDFA festival in Amsterdam on Nov.20. HERE is our Web Site. And HERE is our FaceBook page. Join in!
