In the intimate surroundings of the Drawing Room of the Deanery at Christ Church, Oxford, Untune the Sky presents music, poetry, and wine from an imagined evening at the home of Lili and Nadia Boulanger in 1911.

As two of the most influential composers of the twentieth century, their regular salons played host to some of the leading figures from the Belle Époque to enjoy each other's musical company and present some of their newest compositions years before they were ever published (if at all).

Untune the Sky will perform ensemble pieces and solo songs by the Boulanger sisters, Cecile Chaminade, Jane Vieu, Gabriel Faure, Camille Saint-Saens, and more.
