An exploration of the lives and music of celebrated Jewish songwriters, whose achievements would come to dominate that body of work known as the “Great American Songbook.”
We’ll discuss the lives, careers, and music of such luminaries as the Brothers Gershwin, Jerome Kern, Irving Berlin, Harold Arlen, and more.
Classic recordings, rare video clips, and “live” performances from the instructor will make this program as exciting as the music itself.
Teacher: Winner of 28 Washington Area Music Awards, Seth Kibel is a highly acclaimed clarinet, saxophone, and flute player (The Kleztet, Bay Jazz Project, Music Pilgrim Trio, The Natty Beaux). Kibel also lectures on music history at Johns Hopkins and Towson Universities.
