Song Lyric Course

The word schemes of P.G. Wodehouse, Dorothy Fields, Ira Gershwin, Cole Porter, Lorenz Hart, Oscar Hammerstein, Gus Kahn, Yip Harburg, Johnny Mercer, Stephen Sondheim, and others, were written for particular audiences in the N.Y. theatres and Tin Pan Alley. In the Manhattan mixed ethnic culture of early last century there were big changes in the literary and theatre arts generally, and something unique in the verse-prose of the popular song.  
For five weekly Tuesday mornings, starting October 7 at the Wylam Institute, we will listen to and study these popular song lyrics – course cost likely to be about £15 p.p.

To enroll contact rguariento@btinternet.com or phone 01661 852 632.
