The Dress Circle: "Pop-Kern"

b_pop-kern_final_0.jpg

It’s time for a little Pop-Kern on this week’s Dress Circle (4/18 7:00 p.m.).  While assembling a program for our jazz program Strike Up the Band, we found that we had a great deal of music by some of the great musical composers performed by some of the best pop vocalists of the early to middle 20th Century, and we’re beginning with songs from the stage and screen works of Jerome Kern, hence the “Pop-Kern.”   Our vocalists include Dinah Shore, Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Bing Crosby, Doris Day, Nat King Cole, and many more.  

This is the first in a series of these “pop” programs that will shine a light on a time when many songs from the musicals had lives outside of their shows. 

Join us for another hour of fabulous music and great singing.
