The Golden Age of Music: The Singers and Big Bands of the 1930’s and 1940’s

Join Herb Kaufman to explore the late 1930’s through the 1940’s – the “Golden Age of the American Song Book.” This is a fun and nostalgic look at a musical sentimental journey back to the singers and big bands that had America “jumpin & jivein” in theaters, ballrooms and dance halls.

This is an all-new program of music. With power point photos as a backdrop, CD’s of the original singers and bands and highlighted by many original World War II era 78 rpm records, Herb will present patriotic music, sentimental songs, comic melodies and music that has been woven into the fabric of our American culture.

This program supports the PA Forward Initiative.

To register, email refdesk@ivpl.org, call 215-723-9109, ext. 3 or visit the reference desk.
