About the Event

On January 16, 1938, Benny Goodman played the concert of his life — his orchestra performed at the time‐honored Carnegie Hall in New York. It was the first engagement of a jazz band in a concert hall otherwise reserved for classical music and a sensation at the time. More than 80 years after the legendary performance, the Swing Dance Orchestra brings this probably most famous concert in the history of jazz to the stage with great attention to detail.
