The 16-piece Orchestra are in demand as Australia's authentic re-creation of the Ragtime and Hot Dance Orchestras of the early 1900’s, 1920’s and early 1930’s. They play original charts sourced from various collectors in the USA & Australia, plus transcriptions of many of the great recordings of that era. The concert in the stunning acoustics of the Sisters' Chapel will feature the era 1895-1923 - music by Scott Joplin, John Phillip Sousa, WC Handy, Irving Berlin & Nick la Rocca. The audience are encouraged (but not obliged!) to join in the fun and dress in costume of the era – the musicians will be!
