Pianist Donald Sosin has been creating and performing silent film music for 45 years. He and his wife, singer Joanna Seaton, perform regularly at New York's Museum of Modern Art and at major film festivals—Seattle, Telluride, Bologna, and Pordenone, and on many college campuses. He has performed at the San Francisco Silent Film Festival since 2007. Donald’s scores are heard regularly on Turner Classic Movies and his music accompanies films on over 50 DVDs. In April, he received the Denver Silent Film Festival's Career Achievement Award. In the summer of 2016, two of his orchestral scores premiered: Sherlock Holmes, at the Odessa (Ukraine) International Film Festival, and Keaton’s The High Sign, at Bologna’s Cinema Ritrovato.
Donald Sosin will perform at SFSFF 2018, coming May 30–June 3 to the Castro Theatre, San Francisco
