What A World features live footage of Boston's eclectic musicians' collective DÜNYA. The film presents the ensemble's concert performance of 20th century Turkish music, as well as interviews and insights into the surprising cultural and musical links between Boston and Turkey. DÜNYA, which takes its name from the Turkish, Arabic, Persian and Greek word for "world," has explored a wide range of music from around the world since its 2004 debut. The diverse group includes specialists in early European and Jewish music, jazz and contemporary pop sounds. Members will be on-hand for brief discussions before and after the screening. Learn More

The band was excellent, particularly the drummer who did a really good rendition of Song,Sing,Sing (not quite Gene Krupa, but really good). The singers/dancers were also excellent. We were sitting way back but it didn't make much of a difference
With a big band orchestra, singers and swing dancers, _ In the Mood_ is the retro 1940’s musical that brings to the stage the music that moved a nation’s spirit and helped win a war.
Much more than a concert, In the Mood is a 1940’s Big Band Theatrical Swing Revue that brings to life the era when all of America was listening and dancing to the same kind of music: Glenn Miller, Tommy Dorsey, Artie Shaw, Benny Goodman, Harry James, Erskine Hawkins, The Andrews Sisters, Frank Sinatra, and other greats of the 1940’s.
Featuring a company of 19 including the In the Mood Singers and Dancers with the sensational String of Pearls Big Band Orchestra, “the show’s arrangements, costumes and choreography are as authentic as it gets!” It’s a sentimental, romantic, patriotic, nostalgic, and jazzy tribute to America’s Greatest Generation that’s of interest to swing fans of all ages. In the Mood is currently on a national tour celebrating its sixteenth year of touring.
