Relive the glory days of shoulder pads, pastel suits, and big hair as guest conductor Stuart Chafetz digs deep into the vinyl vaults to present the biggest hits of the 1980s, a decade of synth-pop and breezy chart toppers like The Power of Love, Wake Me up Before You Go-Go, and 867-5309 (Jenny). After his most excellent and auspicious NAC debut in 2017, Chafetz returns to lead the NAC Orchestra through a whole new playlist of gnarly tunes that will have you moving in your seat. Don’t miss this all new evening of the music you love to love!
DRESS UP PARTY: Fashion was just as quintessential to the eighties as was the music, so, we are dressing up! That’s right, the Orchestra will sport bodacious throwback threads in lieu of formal black attire. Love a theme party? You can dress up too! Big hair, neon colours, shoulder pads, ripped knees, mullets and leg warmers are all totally righteous!
