Upcoming Concert: COLE PORTER & FRIENDS 
7:30 PM, November 15, 2018 & November 16, 2018
Stoughton Village Players

The 20s, 30s, and 40s offered up a treasure trove of wonderful American Popular Music. Several scholars and musicians have put together a number of publications that included what they thought were the 100 greatest popular tunes of the times. Of course the collections by various editors differed slightly, but the general lists were pretty much the same. These listed selections are usually entitled "The Great American Song Book" or "The American Song Bag" etc. Cole Porter, an American composer and songwriter, is widely considered as one of the greatest song writers among these selections. Of the more than 800 songs he produced during his life, dozens have become standards and are featured in “The Great American Song Book”. This concert features selections not only composed by Cole Porter, but from other composers such as Duke Ellington, Hoagy Carmichael, George Gershwin, and Fats Waller arranged for choir. Most of them will be very familiar to you all.
