Last season, we commemorated the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic by presenting a special concert of music as it would have been heard in its salons and dining rooms on its last night afloat. On the heels of that delightful concert, and spurred on by its success, we present a second installment. Everything from Bach and Irving Berlin to waltzes by Strauss and ragtime by Scott Joplin. In this exciting and toe-tappingly delicious concert, Maestro De Fesi recreates the original arrangements so that we can glimpse, for a moment, the grandeur, the fun and the excitement that held sway aboard that great liner. Those now-legendary musicians may be gone from this world, but the echo of their music lives on for one more day...
