Spend the afternoon listening to some great music. Listen to CD recordings of outstanding performances of standards, known as the Great American Songbook. You may know the names George Gershwin, Cole Porter, and Irving Berlin. Russ will introduce you to a whole world of composers and lyricists beyond them. Among the greats you will hear are Peggy Lee, Judy Garland, Frank Sinatra, and Frankie Laine, with some Big Band, Broadway, and breezy jazz thrown into the mix. There will be some surprises, and lesser-known artists who deserve better! Come to discover or rediscover great music.
