Folk Song to Jazz – England in the Roaring 20s

Folk Song to Jazz – England in the Roaring 20s

Sunday 9 September, 2.30pm

Albert Hall

Join the Canberra Choral Society in the historic Albert Hall as we celebrate the music of this fabulous era, and the greatest of all traditions – afternoon tea.

The Great War had come and gone and nothing would ever be the same…

The 1920s ushered in an age of artistic innovation and of challenging the old traditions. In this concert we move from beautifully crafted folk song settings in the traditional style to the syncopated and sensuous sounds of the jazz age.

Musical Director: Peter Young

Featuring soprano Louise Page
and pianists
