Synopsis

1922: What happened 100 years ago? A cultural and artistic explosion, that’s what! It’s the dawn of flappers and the jazz age. It’s the rise of Louis Armstrong and George Gershwin. James Joyce’s Ulysses and TS Eliot’s The Waste Land are published. The horror movie classic Nosferatu hits the screen along with Rudolph Valentino’s Blood and Sand. “T’Ain’t Nobody’s Biz-ness if I Do” and Fanny Brice’s “My Man” rule the radio. Picasso and The Group of Seven explode the visual world. Hear the music and words, feel the frenzy that was 1922 in a one-hour concert celebrating the year the world said “yes”.

$35 / $30 under 30 / $10 youth
