Get ready for an evening of raucously playful and exuberant music.

Flat Earth Society, the beloved Belgian 15-piece big band, brings incredible energy to a 100th anniversary screening of The Oyster Princess (1919), a darkly satirical silent film by celebrated director Ernst Lubitsch.

Through a combination of big brass, bass, sax, drums, keyboard, and guitar, Flat Earth Society performs an original live score by composer Peter Vermeersch, playing perfectly in-sync with the film. As the comedy plays out on screen, it’s impossible to resist the enthusiasm and joy that emanates from the musicians to the audience.

RBC is the community sponsor for this performance.
