Three Titans of the Great American Songbook

Thursday, October 27, 2022 | 6:00pm - 7:00pm

Henry Feinberg, Composer, Musician & former Professor

The Great American Songbook has provided the world with an untold number of standards that have been recorded for over 100 years, and to this day, musicians and listeners still fi nd them irresistible in their melodies and structures. What was the secret ingredient that made these songs so special and what is it that makes these songs uniquely American? We will look for answers as we discuss and listen to songs by Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern and George Gershwin. Included will be original recordings by Al Jolson, Ethel Merman, Nat King Cole and more recent recordings by Willie Nelson, Linda Ronstadt and Rod Stewart!
