Hi-de-ho, hepcats. Let the TSO transport you to Prohibition-era New York City, where history’s greatest jazz musicians performed at the local club, night after night. A small band of guest vocalists, musicians, and dancers partners with the Orchestra and conductor Jeff Tyzik to capture the spirit of the speakeasy. Tap your feet to songs by the immortal Duke Ellington, Billie Holiday, Cab Calloway, Louis Armstrong, and others.
