An evening of exceptional cabaret, burlesque, and belle époque music performed by BÉME!
Join us at the Concord Conservatory of Music (CCM) on Friday, November 18 at 7:30 pm for an evening of exceptional cabaret, burlesque, and belle époque music performed by the talented ensemble Belle Époque Music Ensemble/BÉME.
In the optimistic Belle Époque era of the late 1800s to the Roaring Twenties (aka Années Folles–known as the crazy years in France), an abundance of uplifting and lively music was composed in Europe and America that has continued to capture our hearts and attention throughout the decades. BÉME brings back this music and transports you to the Roaring Twenties—a time when jazzy, energetic, and spirited pieces ruled.
CCM faculty members Fabrizio Mazzetta on cello, and Masako Yotsugi on piano, with guest soprano Sonia Jacobson, will present a program that includes works of Gershwin, Erik Satie, Offenbach, and Scott Joplin, among others. Their original arrangements of iconic numbers such as the Can-Can, ragtime, and the Charleston will deliver pocket-sized dramas and romances through witty, sometimes provocative, and positive prose and poetry.
