Voices of the Silent Screen 
Silent movies sometimes starred actors and actresses who had glorious singing or speaking voices (e.g.: Ivor Novello, Ronald Colman, Basil Rathbone, and even Enrico Caruso). There were of course, others whose voices were not suitable for the Age of Sound, and most of them soon disappeared from the Silver Screen, Charlie Chaplin being the exception. CAPS Lifetime member, John Rutherfordpromises this talk will be profusely illustrated with photos and recordings.

Phonograph Show and TellCAPS president, Mike Bryan, will be putting together what has become one of our most popular presentations. Members are invited to bring in their rare and unusual phonographs to display and discuss. If you have something that you would like to include, bring it in for all of us to enjoy.

 

The Canadian Antique Phonograph Society meets on a regular basis, currently eight times a year between September and June. CAPS meetings attract more than 50 members and guests. Arrive early to peruse the auction tables.

Each meeting begins with a presentation of about one hour in duration by one of our members or a specially-invited speaker on one aspect or another of recorded-sound history. This is followed by a 20-minute social period where members exchange information about records, machines and parts, survey the auction tables and any set price sale items, or view one of the displays that members often set up. Facilities are also available for screening short videos during the meeting.

Following this is an auction of a wide variety of sound machines, recordings and music-related ephemera. Admission is $5 per person which pays for the meeting room and the refreshments. Guests are welcomed at our meetings. To participate in the auction, however, you must be a member.
