The roaring Twenties: a decade when everything changed. Dresses went up, hair came down, and new words entered the language: foxtrots, flappers, bobs and the blues. And composers threw themselves into the spirit of the times, with some of the most colourful, original – and unexpected – music of the 20th century.
A hundred years on, the musical world has been transformed all over again, and the CBSO is adapting with it. As our musicians perform live in public after an unprecedented silence, and as we welcome you, our audience, into our home for the first time since…well, you know what…we celebrate the rarely-heard music of that exuberant era, in a specially devised series of concerts at CBSO Centre. Let the music play!
