The superlative Alex Mendham and his orchestra kick off this year’s Roman River Festival with an evening of 1920s sophistication and style.
They combine meticulously researched original instruments, sharp tuxedos and spectacular dresses with musical virtuosity, energy and passion to conjure up the sound, charm and white-tie elegance of vintage Hollywood.
Songs by Rodgers & Hart, Cole Porter and Irving Berlin and a thrilling performance of Gershwin’s Rhapsody In Blue in its original jazz setting, all with Alex’s charismatic presentation sweeping you along, and special guest vocalists the Dunlop Sisters.
