Maye CavallaroSUNDAYS, JANUARY 19, 26 & FEBRUARY 9, 12 PM

Jerome Kern was the composer of beautiful melodies that are just as fresh and inventive today. Kern penned over 700 songs for both the stage and movies and in 1970 was posthumously inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame. He collaborated with Oscar Hammerstein to compose one of the first modern musicals, Show Boat, that featured an integrated story and songs, introducing such memorable tunes as “Ol Man River” and “Can’t Help Loving Dat Man.” Kern’s classic compositions include ‘”The Way You Look Tonight,” “Smoke Gets in Your Eyes,” and “All The Things You Are.” We’ll explore and sing Kern’s music, listen to how jazz greats have interpreted these songs and get ideas for our own arrangements! Students are provided with 10 lead sheets, including practice-backing tracks. In the final week we’ll work with an accompanist.
