THE CAPITAL DANCE ORCHESTRA (ORCHESTRA)
In its original big band line-up, The Capital Dance Orchestra, conducted by violinist David Canisius, offers the glitz and glamour of Berlin’s legendary dance halls. The brilliant orchestra feels right at home on every kind of dance floor: it is versatile and at the same time emanates an impressive stage presence.
Its members are professional musicians that skilfully master sublte nuances with differentiated sound volume, set free unbridled energy, fascinate with poignant show elements, congenially accompanied by the two singers Meta Hüper and Simon Marlow.
The established concert series “Stars go Swing” brings together the orchestra’s musical brilliance and the uniqueness of its star performers such as Nina Hagen, Vicky Leandros, Katja Riemann, Barbara Schöneberger, Jochen Kowalski, Bodo, Wartke, Jeanette Biedermann, Louie Austen or the adorable duo Katharine Mehrling and Sharon Brauner performing as the “Swinging Jewels”.
International music styles in languages such as German, English, Russian, and Yiddish mirror the melting pot that is Berlin with all its numerous influences and current trends that constitute the metropolis’ identity.
The Capital Dance Orchestra has just come up with its new programme "Chartbeat" and you'd better not underestimate the portion of swing! You are about to hear a whole selection of charthits but this time sparkling with charm and glamour. A little bit of party never hurt anyone.
