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.
