American composer and conductor Timothy Brock leads members of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in the score to Charlie Chaplin's 'Modern Times,' with the film shown on the big screen. In the final appearance of Chaplin's iconic Little Tramp (the character that brought him world fame), the incomparable actor-director created a comedy about man's struggle to survive in the industrialized world during the Great Depression. In 1999, Timothy Brock was asked by the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, in cooperation with the Chaplin Estate, to restore and reconstruct Chaplin's 1936 score to 'Modern Times' for live performance; he has subsequently been engaged by the Chaplin family to restore and perform scores to many of Chaplin's other movies, including 'City Lights,' 'The Circus,' 'A Dog's Life,' 'Shoulder Arms' and 'The Pilgrim.'
