    Tribute to Great American song writers, lyricist & composers.

    April 2nd, 2017

    Sunday, 3pm

    Whether it's called a song from The Great American Songbook or a "Standard" it's the same thing. That song that you know so well. The lyrics that you sing along to as you're driving along. The tunes that, by a huge margin, couples call "Our Song". These are the melodies that have stood the test of time, that remind us of the best of times, that inspire and comfort and thrill. All played by a big symphony orchestra.

    Greatest songs by Irving Berlin, George & Ira Gershwin, Cole Porter, Harold Arlen, Cab Calloway and much, much more. Their music says it all.
