SILENT FILM ACCOMPANIST
PHILADELPHIA _ When Brett Miller first saw a live organ accompany a silent film — the 1925 version of Phantom of the Opera at the University of Pennsylvania’s Irvine Auditorium — he was stunned. “Oh, I want to do this,” he thought to himself. He was 10. Miller, now 17 and a junior at Pennridge High School in Bucks County, estimates he’s since accompanied more than 60 silent films at locations from the Colonial Theatre in Phoenixville to the Loew’s in Jersey City.
