Cole Porter Musicals and Films: Great American Songbook 2
The 1920s to 1950s was a golden era for American popular songs and some of these have become known collectively as The Great American Songbook.
The ‘book’ includes the many of the most influential and enduring songs from Broadway, musical theatre, Hollywood musical films and the world of jazz. Many of the composers and lyricists are household names, but some are possibly less well known than their songs.
This second home-based session will dig a little deeper into the music of the composer and lyricist Cole Porter. This will include:
• A selection of songs from American musical theatre
• A selection of songs from American musical films
• The stories behind a couple of songs
The coordinator will provide various examples of songs, but participants are also encouraged to bring along any examples they can offer, and to make suggestions about material/topics in advance that they think might prove useful in discussion.
If you would like to participate please contact the coordinator using the Bluebird contact box on this page.
