GET HAPPY: The Great American Songbook

The Great American Songbook

The Great American Songbook.......before hip-hop, before heavy metal, before the Beatles, before rock 'n roll, before the big band, there was a group of composers who worked on Broadway and in film and defined the pop music of the 20s and 30s. Cole Porter, Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, Rodgers & Hart, Harold Arlen and George Gershwin took African-American ragtime and jazz and blended them with the sophisticated lyrics of Hammerstein, Dorothy Fields, Ira Gershwin and Dubose Heywood to create a body of music that has never gone out of style and never will. They created story, character and love songs that are as relevant today as they were 75 years ago. That's why they are called "standards." Come hear these songs performed by a dozen musical theatre students from M.U. directed and choreographed by Jim Miller with musical direction by Cheryl Nichols.
