Get a load of this from the Syracuse Herald of Oct 6, 1922, p. 13.
From Harry E. Norton, proprietor of the Alhambra:
"I wish to again call to the attention of Syracusans
the policy that is and will govern the conduct of the
Alhambra Dancing Academy. I am determined that this
academy will be known as a place of refined entertainment
for ladies and gentlemen. Every possible precaution
is being taken to see that any and all objectionable features
are eliminated. 1 will not tolerate anything that may be the
least offensive to the finer sensibilities of the refined
group of people for whom this academy is conducted."
The Royal Harmonists of Indiana
will play their original interpretation from a famous
opera. This is a special feature for Saturday night and
is in addition to the wonderful dancing program you always
have at the

I wonder what opera? I looked through the 1920-1922 recordings of Paul Whiteman. I found the following recordings of "classical" pieces. There may be more. I wonder how prevalent was for dance bands in the early 1920s to incorporate their versions of "classical" pieces.
