Immerse yourself in the Mad Men era with the Victoria Symphony and Five By Design

Victoria, BC – Wednesday, October 22, 2014
Vocal quintet Five By Design takes the stage with the Victoria Symphony October 30, 31 and November 1 to celebrate the era of cool with 50 and 60’s favourites like Mack the Knife, Night and Day, Fever, and Come Fly With Me.

Five By Design combine great vocal harmonies with musicality to re-create the swagger and chill of the era. Joined by Pops guest conductor Stuart Chafetz, Music of the Mad Men era showcases timeless greats from Dean Martin, Sammy Davis, Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin and more!

Pay homage to the suave and swinging sounds of the 50’s and 60’s: a time when Don Draper’s sharp-suited style was fashionable, when Bossa Nova was new, the lounges of Las Vegas were hip and catchy dance music spun on every hi-fi. Loosen your tie and get your groove on with 60’s themed cocktails including Vodka Gimlets, Tom Collinses and Cuba Libres. Combine a few ounces of Nat King Cole, a shot of Sinatra and even a splash of Wayne Newton – all mixed into a Mad Men musical cocktail!

Come dressed as your best Don Draper and buy your Joan Holloway a Tom Collins (the drink!).

The first 25 people through the doors on October 31 will receive a prize!

Performances are October 30 at 2:00 pm and October 31 and November 1 at 8:00 pm. Tickets start at $30 and are available by calling 250.385.6515.
