Program

A hundred years ago, American cities like New York and Chicago experienced a boom in popular music and entertainment that ran parallel to the construction of skyscrapers and the growth of the automobile industry. Jazz, blues and swing were to be heard in leisure venues everywhere, music that spread all over the world, also becoming popular in Catalonia. In this concert, Symphonic Band offers a programme with such well known works as George Hamilton Green’s Charleston and William Christopher Handy’s blues music, plus works by renowned composers George Gershwin, Cole Porter and Charles Chaplin, who, in addition to acting and directing, also wrote the theme tunes for some of his films. As well as all these North American tunes, the concert includes a change in rhythm with a selection of Carlos Gardel’s best known tangos.
