To welcome in the 2020s, return to the roaring 1920s for this alternative Burn's Night concert in association with Guildford Jazz.

In the decade when William Orpen was at his most productive and commercially successful, the music scene of London was undergoing a transformation. With an influx of new musical genres from America, the beginnings of the jazz age filtered into the city. Initially called 'hot' or 'straight' dance music, jazz music shook the music halls and theatres and gained enormous popularity for its 'riotous' sound that defied British musical tradition.

Featuring music by Fats Waller, Duke Ellington, Teddy Wilson, the Benny Goodman small bands and others, join trumpeter and four-times winner of the British Jazz Awards, Enrico Tomasso, together with his quartet for a joyous evening of jazz.
