WE NEED A LITTLE CHRISTMAS  
TUESDAY, DECEMBER 15, 2020 | 7:30 PM  
Will McMillan with Joe Reid on piano  
THIS EVENT WAS CANCELLED AND HAS NOT BEEN RE-SCHEDULED. Many of America's most beloved winter holiday songs have been written or co-written by Jewish songwriters. This is not such a surprise when one remembers that the majority of what we now call "The Great American Songbook" was created by Jewish songwriters. This show features songs such as "Winter Wonderland," "We Need A Little Christmas," "Silver Bells," "The Christmas Waltz," "Let It Snow, Let it Snow, Let It Snow," "The Christmas Song," "Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer," "Sleigh Ride," "Christmas Lullaby," "Count Your Blessings," "Happy Holiday," and "White Christmas" by songwriters including Irving Berlin, Jason Robert Brown, Sammy Cahn, Ray Evans, Jerry Herman, Jay Livingston, Johnny Marks, Mitchell Parish, Jule Styne, Mel Torme, and Bob Wells.

SWINGING ON A STAR  
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 22, 2020 | 2:00 PM  
Will McMillan with Joe Reid on piano  
THIS EVENT WAS CANCELLED AND HAS NOT BEEN RE-SCHEDULED.. Harry Lillis "Bing" Crosby Jr. was one of America's first superstars. He had more hit singles than any other recording artist in history, starred in scores of movies — winning an Oscar for best actor in 1944 — and hosted radio programs which reached millions oflisteners each week. During WWII he toured the front lines and was described as "the person who had done the most for the morale of overseas servicemen" by Yank Magazine. He was also a very successful entrepreneur, helping to found the recording company Ampex, building the Del Mar race track, developing real estate, buying TV stations, and co-owning a major league baseball team. Bing's biggest hit song was "White Christmas," which stayed at number one on the radio charts for 11 weeks and became the most successful single of all time. Will and Joe will share many of Bing's biggest hits — including “Pennies From Heaven," “Out Of This World,” "But Beautiful," “You’re Getting To Be A Habit With Me,” "In The Cool, Cool, Cool Of The Evening," "Count Your Blessings," "True Love," "Small Fry," and "Brother, Can You Spare A Dime?" — as well as stories about how certain songs came to be created.

THAT'S AMORE 
SUNDAY, OCTOBER 11. 2020 | 2:00 PM 
Will McMillan with Joe Reid on piano 
THIS EVENT WAS CANCELLED AND HAS NOT BEEN RE-SCHEDULED. Composer Harry Warren (born Salvatore Guaragna on December 24, 1893) is one of the unsung heroes of Hollywood’s golden era. From 1931 - 1945, Harry Warren co-wrote more hit songs than Irving Berlin, and had more Oscar nominations for best song (11) and wins (3) than Berlin, George Gershwin, or Hoagie Carmichael. Warren also had more hit records — 42 songs! — on "Your Hit Parade" than any of his peers. Some of his standards include "Jeepers Creepers,” “We're in the Money," “Chattanooga Choo Choo,” “Lulu’s Back In Town,” "I Only Have Eyes for You," “The More I See You,” “Lullaby of Broadway,” “This Heart Of Mine,” "You'll Never Know,” “You Must Have Been A Beautiful Baby,” "42nd Street," “That's Amore,” and "At Last." Although a Brooklyn boy at heart, Warren ended up living in California for most of his adult life — working primarily for four movie studios: Warner Brothers in the 30s, 20th Century-Fox in the early 40s, MGM in the later 40s, and finally Paramount in the 50's. Warren’s songs have been in more movies — 109 —than any other composer, yet during his lifetime he did not receive anywhere near the acclaim as fellow composers such as Jerome Kern, Richard Rodgers, or Harold Arlen. Singer Will McMillan and jazz pianist Joe Reid will share a bunch of Warren’s great songs as well as stories about his life, his career in Hollywood, and how certain songs came to be written.

THEY SAY IT'S WONDERFUL 
THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, 2020 | 2:30 PM 
Will McMillan with Joe Reid on piano 
THIS EVENT WAS CANCELLED AND HAS NOT BEEN RE-SCHEDULED. Ethel Merman (January 16, 1908 – February 15, 1984) was a star on Broadway for over four decades — introducing standards such as "I Got Rhythm," "It's De-Lovely," "I Get A Kick Out Of You," "There's No Business Like Show Business," and "Life Is Just A Bowl Of Cherries." Born and raised in Astoria, NY, Merman sang as a child for soldiers during the first World War, and got her big break when the Gershwin brothers cast her in their musical Girl Crazy. During her extraordinarily successful career on Broadway she starred in musicals by Cole Porter (who wrote "Anything Goes," "Down In The Depths on the 90th Floor," "You're The Top," and "Ridin' High" for her), Irving Berlin (who wrote "They Say It's Wonderful," "You're Just In Love," "I Got The Sun In The Morning," and "I Got Lost In His Arms" for her) and Jule Styne/Stephen Sondheim (who wrote "Everything's Coming Up Roses," "Small World," "Some People," and "You'll Never Get Away From Me" for her). Merman also made many movies and was a regular fixture on radio and television for decades — but her personal life was full of heart-ache and challenges. Pianist Joe Reid and vocalist Will McMillan bring her hits to life and share a few stories about her astounding career. <

THE LOOK OF LOVE 
SUNDAY, AUGUST 16, 2020 | 2:00 PM 
Will McMillan with Joe Reid on piano 
We DID bring music to Springhouse on 8/16/20 — but we were all outside and very well-masked. And we shared our Hoagie Carmichael program instead of Bacharach (which we were unable to rehearse due to Covid...) Burt Bacharach wrote the music for hundreds of songs which topped the music charts from the 1950s-1980s. His first main collaborator was lyricist Hal David, with whom he wrote a slew of hits for singers such as Dionne Warwick, Perry Como, Dusty Springfield, Herb Alpert, Tom Jones, and the Carpenters. After he stopped working with Hal David, Bacharach continued to co-write hits such as “Arthur’s Theme (When You Get Caught Between The Moon and NYC)” and “That’s What Friends Are For.” While Bacharach’s songs may appear to be simple upon first listening, they are surprisingly complicated — full of unusual chords and changing time signatures. Jazz pianist Joe Reid and singer Will McMillan will share classics including “Walk On By,” “I Say A Little Prayer For You,” “Alfie,” “The Look Of Love,” “(They Long To Be) Close To You,” “Wishin’ and Hopin’,” “I’ll Never Fall In Love Again,” — which was written here in Boston when their musical Promises, Promises was trying out before a successful Broadway run — and the Oscar-winning ”Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head.”

Will McMillan with Joe Reid on piano 
THIS EVENT WAS CANCELLED AND HAS NOT BEEN RE-SCHEDULED... Lyricist, librettist, playwright, director, and producer Oscar Greeley Clendenning Hammerstein II is perhaps best known for his extraordinary work with composer Richard Rodgers on musicals and films such as The Sound Of Music, Oklahoma, South Pacific, Carousel, State Fair, and The King and I. Earlier in his career, however, he collaborated with many different composers including Rudolf Friml, Richard Whiting, Vincent Youmans, Sigmund Romberg, and Jerome Kern — with whom he created the ground-breaking musical Show Boat. During the course of Hammerstein’s 40-year career he earned many awards — including two Oscars, two Grammys, two Pulitzer prizes, and eight Tony awards. Will and Joe are honored to perform such classics as “Oh, What A Beautiful Morning,” “Edelweiss,” “Can’t Help Lovin’ That Man,” “Getting To Know You,” “Carefully Taught,” “Indian Love Call,” “Surry with the Fringe On Top,” “I Whistle a Happy Tune,” “Stouthearted Men” “Cockeyed Optimist,” “Climb Every Mountain,” “Hello, Young Lovers,” “It’s a Grand Night for Singing,” and “Happy Talk.”

Will McMillan with Joe Reid on piano 
THIS EVENT WAS CANCELLED AND HAS NOT BEEN RE-SCHEDULED... Frank Loesser was a lyricist, composer and businessman who created an extraordinary catalog of song hits. He was born into a family of classical musicians — and rebelled to pursure his passion for pop music and musical theater. Starting as a lyricist, he co-wrote such hits as "Two Sleepy People," "I Don't Want to Walk Without You," and "I Hear Music" in Hollywood. During World War II he joined the Special Services division of the Army, writing words and music for original shows to entertain the troops. He also penned the anthem "Praise The Lord and Pass The Ammunition." After the war, he returned to New York and wrote the songs for his first musical, WHERE'S CHARLEY? — which was followed by other hit shows including GUYS AND DOLLS, THE MOST HAPPY FELLA, and HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING. Will and Joe will put their own spin on Loesser classics such as "I'd Like To Get You On A Slow Boat to China," "Once In Love With Amy," "If I Were A Bell," "Let's Get Lost," "Luck Be A Lady," "I've Never Been In Love Before" "Inchworm," "Somebody, Somewhere," "Thumbelina," "Sit Down You're Rocking The Boat," and "I Believe In You," — as well as share somew stories about Mr. Loesser's life and how some of his songs came to be written.

THURSDAY, JUNE 11, 2020 | 1:00 PM 
Will McMillan with Joe Reid on piano 
THIS EVENT WAS CANCELLED AND HAS NOT BEEN RE-SCHEDULED... George and Ira Gershwin were brothers whose playful, witty songs — brimming with rhythm and harmony —epitomized the jazz age. Born to Russian parents who emigrated to New York City to escape persecution under Czar Alexander III, Ira and George initially pursued parallel paths as lyricist and composer, officially teaming up in 1924 to co-create the musical comedy Lady Be Good. This was followed by a string of hit Broadway shows — with stars such as Ethel Merman, Fred and Adele Astaire, Ginger Rogers and Gertrude Lawrence — including Oh Kay!, Funny Face, Strike Up The Band, Girl Crazy, and Of Thee I Sing, which was the first musical to win the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. 
The Gershwins also spent time in Hollywood, writing songs for movies such as Delicious, A Damsel In Distress, and The Goldwyn Follies — and collaborated with novelist DuBose Heyward on a ground-breaking opera, Porgy and Bess. Along with stories about the brothers’ collaborative process, Will and Joe bring Gershwin standards to life including “S Wonderful,” “Fascinating Rhythm,” “They All Laughed,” “Love Is Sweeping The Country,” “They Can’t Take That Away From Me,” “He Loves and She Loves” “Nice Work If You Can Get It,” “I Got Rhythm,” “Someone To Watch Over Me,” “A Foggy Day,” and “Summertime.”

Judy also left her indelible mark on classics such as "For Me And My Gal" and "Get Happy." Will and Joe will perform many of these songs as well as selections from her legendary Carnegie Hall concerts — a live recording of which earned her the Grammy award for Album of the Year in 1961 — and also share a few stories about the ups and downs of her extraordinary life.

Will and Joe are honored to perform such classics as “Oh, What A Beautiful Morning,” “Edelweiss,” “Can’t Help Lovin’ That Man,” “Getting To Know You,” “Carefully Taught,” “Indian Love Call,” “Surry with the Fringe On Top,” “I Whistle a Happy Tune,” “Stouthearted Men” “Cockeyed Optimist,” “Climb Every Mountain,” “Hello, Young Lovers,” “It’s a Grand Night for Singing,” “Who?” and “Happy Talk.”

THIS EVENT WAS CANCELLED AND HAS NOT BEEN RE-SCHEDULED... Sammy Cahn was a lyricist who co-wrote an extraordinary number of hit songs for Hollywood, Broadway, and Tin Pan Alley including: "I Fall in Love Too Easily," "I've Heard That Song Before," "It's Magic," "The Tender Trap," "Come Fly with Me," "The Second Time Around," "I Guess I'll Hang My Tears Out to Dry," "The Christmas Waltz," "It's Been a Long, Long Time," "Saturday Night Is the Loneliest Night of the Week," "Come Dance with Me," "Teach Me Tonight," and "Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!" He was born Samuel Cohen on the Lower East Side of Manhattan after his parents had emigrated from Galicia in Europe. He and his sisters all studied music, and as a teenager, Cahn joined a Dixieland band which toured in the Catskills. One of his early successes was co-writing songs for short films at Warner Brothers’ studio in Brooklyn, and he also created special material for up-and-coming performers such as Milton Berle, Danny Kaye, and Bob Hope. Cahn enjoyed hit recordings by Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Doris Day, the Tommy Dorsey band and many others and won four Academy Awards for Best Song in a Motion Picture: "Three Coins in the Fountain," "All the Way," "Call Me Irresponsible," and "High Hopes." Singer Will McMillan and jazz pianist Joe Reid will share an hour of Cahn’s great songs plus a few stories about the man himself and how he came to write so many hits!

Born to Russian parents who emigrated to New York City to escape persecution under Czar Alexander III, Ira and George initially pursued parallel paths as lyricist and composer, officially teaming up in 1924 to co-create the musical comedy Lady Be Good. This was followed by a string of hit Broadway shows — with stars such as Ethel Merman, Fred and Adele Astaire, Ginger Rogers and Gertrude Lawrence — including Oh Kay!, Funny Face, Strike Up The Band, Girl Crazy, and Of Thee I Sing, which was the first musical to win the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. 
The Gershwins also spent time in Hollywood, writing songs for movies such as Delicious, A Damsel In Distress, and The Goldwyn Follies — and collaborated with novelist DuBose Heyward on a ground-breaking opera, Porgy and Bess. Along with stories about the brothers’ collaborative process, Will and Joe bring Gershwin standards to life including “S Wonderful,” “Fascinating Rhythm,” “They All Laughed,” “Love Is Sweeping The Country,” “They Can’t Take That Away From Me,” “He Loves and She Loves” “Nice Work If You Can Get It,” “I Got Rhythm,” “Someone To Watch Over Me,” “A Foggy Day,” and “Summertime.”

You may not recognize her name, but you probably know lots of songs for which Dorothy Fields wrote lyrics such as “I Can’t Give You Anything But Love,” “On The Sunny Side Of The Street,” “Hey, Big Spender,” and “Pick Yourself Up.” Born into a show business family in 1904, Ms. Fields worked as a lyricist for almost fifty years — starting with hit songs in the 1920s for a Cotton Club revue featuring Duke Ellington right through a triumphant collaboration with Cy Coleman, Neil Simon, Gwen Verdon and Bob Fosse on Sweet Charity in the 1960s. She co-wrote songs with over 15 composers, including Jimmy McHugh, Jerome Kern, Harold Arlen, Arthur Schwartz, and Sigmund Romberg — and won an Academy award in 1936 with Kern for “The Way You Look Tonight.” As a librettist, she and her brother Herbert collaborated on many hit shows with Cole Porter and Irving Berlin, including the Broadway classic Annie Get Your Gun. In a business dominated by men, Ms. Fields enjoyed a singularly successful career as a songwriter/librettist while also being a wife and mother. Although she may not have become a household name, she deserves to be one! Pianist Joe Reid and vocalist Will McMillan will share a bouquet of her hits — including “I Won’t Dance,” “If My Friends Could See Me Now,” “It’s Not Where You Start, It’s Where You Finish,” “Remind Me,” “You Couldn’t Be Cuter,” and “I’m In The Mood For Love” — as well as a few stories about how they came to be written. <

Lorenz Milton Hart was one of the greatest lyricists of the twentieth century. A child of German Jewish immigrants who grew up in New York City, Larry Hart and composer Richard Rodgers wrote some of the most enduring popular songs of all time — including "My Funny Valentine," "Blue Moon," "Manhattan," "Where or When," "The Lady Is a Tramp," "Dancing On the Ceiling," "Glad To Be Unhappy," "Isn't It Romantic," "Lover," "My Romance," and "This Can't Be Love" — for more than 26 Broadway musicals and several movies. A life-long bachelor (and closeted gay man) who lived with his widowed mother, Hart suffered from alcoholism and later in his life would disappear for weeks at a time on binges, which created stress in his collaboration with Rodgers. According to Stephen Holden of The New York Times, "Many of Hart's lyrics were the confessional outpourings of a hopeless romantic who...stood just under five feet tall, wreathed himself in cigar smoke, (and) saw himself as an undesirable freak." Singer Will McMillan and jazz pianist Joe Mulholland will lovingly and respectfully perform many of Hart's best songs and share stories about how they came to be written.

Edgar "Yip" Harburg was a lyricist and librettist who co-wrote some of the most beloved songs of the 20th century. He was born on the Lower East Side of Manhattan in 1896 — the youngest of ten children born to Yiddish-speaking Orthodox Jewish parents who had emigrated from Czarist Russia. After his early career as the co-owner of an electrical appliance company went bust at the start of the Great Depression, he devoted himself to creating songs for Broadway and later for Hollywood — where he wrote much of the script and co-wrote all of the songs for the movie THE WIZARD OF OZ. After his success on California, he returned to New York and helped create Broadway hits such as BLOOMER GIRL, FINIAN'S RAINBOW and JAMAICA. However, his life-long passion for social justice, racial equality, and labor unions led to him being blacklisted from doing any work in TV or movies from 1950 - 1962. Will and Joe will perform such classic songs as "April In Paris," "How Are Things In Glocca Morra?" "If I Only Had A Brain," "Old Devil Moon," "Brother, Can You Spare A Dime?" "We're Off To See The Wizard," "Look To The Rainbow," "Lydia, The Tattooed Lady," "Happiness Is A Thing Called Joe," and "Over The Rainbow" — as well as share a few stories about Yip's inspiring life and how some of his songs came to be written.

During WWII he toured the front lines and was described as "the person who had done the most for the morale of overseas servicemen" by Yank Magazine. He was also a very successful entrepreneur, helping to found the recording company Ampex, building the Delmar race track, developing real estate, buying TV stations, and co-owning a major league baseball team. Bing's biggest hit song was "White Christmas," which stayed at number one on the radio charts for 11 weeks and became the most successful single of all time — selling over 100 million copies around the world. He was the first performer to release a Christmas album, and for many years hosted an annual TV Christmas special with his second wife and their children. Will and Joe will share many of Bing's biggest hits, including "Pennies From Heaven," "The Second Time Around," "Small Fry," "True Love," "In The Cool, Cool, Cool Of The Evening," "But Beautiful," "Count Your Blessings," and "Brother, Can You Spare A Dime?"

He was also a very successful entrepreneur, helping to found the recording company Ampex, building the Del Mar race track, developing real estate, buying TV stations, and co-owning a major league baseball team. Bing's biggest hit song was "White Christmas," which stayed at number one on the radio chartsfor 11 weeks and became the most successful single of all time — selling over 100 million copies around the world. He was the first performer to release a Christmas album, and for many years hosted an annual TV Christmas special with his second wife and their children. Will and Joe will share many of Bing's biggest hits — including "Pennies From Heaven," "Swinging On A Star," "The Second Time Around, "Small Fry," "True Love," "In The Cool, Cool, Cool Of The Evening," "But Beautiful," "Count Your Blessings," and "Brother, Can You Spare A Dime?" as well as holiday favorites "Happy Holiday," "The Secret of Christmas," "A Marshmallow World," "Silver Bells," "Mele Kalikimaka," and "I'll Be Home For Christmas."

Harry Warren (born Salvatore Guaragna on December 24, 1893) is one of the unsung heroes of Hollywood’s golden era. From 1931 - 1945, Harry Warren co-wrote more hit songs than Irving Berlin, and had more Oscar nominations for best song (11) and wins (3) than Berlin, George Gershwin, or Hoagie Carmichael. Warren also had more hit records — 42 songs! — on "Your Hit Parade" than any of his peers. Some of his standards include "Jeepers Creepers,” “We're in the Money," “Chattanooga Choo Choo,” “Lulu’s Back In Town,” "I Only Have Eyes for You," “The More I See You,” “Lullaby of Broadway,” “This Heart Of Mine,” "You'll Never Know,” “You Must Have Been A Beautiful Baby,” "42nd Street," “That's Amore,” and "At Last." Although a Brooklyn boy at heart, Warren ended up living in California for most of his adult life — working primarily for four movie studios: Warner Brothers in the 30s, 20th Century-Fox in the early 40s, MGM in the later 40s, and finally Paramount in the 50's. Warren’s songs have been in more movies — 109 —than any other composer, yet during his lifetime he did not receive anywhere near the acclaim as fellow composers such as Jerome Kern, Richard Rodgers, or Harold Arlen. Singer Will McMillan and jazz pianist Joe Reid will share a bunch of Warren’s great songs as well as stories about his life, his career in Hollywood, and how certain songs came to be written.

Howard Hoagland Carmichael was one of America's most beloved songwriters. He also found fame as a singer-pianist, movie actor and television personality, but never lost his early affinity for jazz. Growing up in a musical household in Bloomington, Indiana, Hoagy often tagged along with his mother when she played the piano in silent movie theaters. Although he earned a law degree, his heart was always in music — and as his songwriting success grew, he moved to NYC and then Hollywood, creating songs which were recorded by Louis Armstrong, Tommy Dorsey, Ethel Waters, Margaret Whiting, Benny Goodman, Mildred Bailey, Bing Crosby, Billie Holiday, and Frank Sinatra. Singer Will McMillan and pianist Joe Reid delight in performing Carmichael classics including "Heart and Soul," "The Nearness of You," "Two Sleepy People," "Georgia On My Mind," "Skylark," "In the Cool, Cool, Cool of the Evening," “I Get Along Without You Very Well," “Bread and Gravy,” “The Lamplighter's Serenade,” "How Little We Know," and "Stardust."

Frank Loesser was a lyricist, composer and businessman who created an extraordinary catalog of song hits. He was born into a family of classical musicians — and rebelled to pursure his passion for pop music and musical theater. Starting as a lyricist, he co-wrote such hits as "Two Sleepy People," "I Don't Want to Walk Without You," and "I Hear Music" in Hollywood. During World War II he joined the Special Services division of the Army, writing words and music for original shows to entertain the troops. He also penned the anthem "Praise The Lord and Pass The Ammunition." After the war, he returned to New York and wrote the songs for his first musical, WHERE'S CHARLEY? — which was followed by other hit shows including GUYS AND DOLLS, THE MOST HAPPY FELLA, and HOW TO SUCCEED IN BUSINESS WITHOUT REALLY TRYING. Will and Joe will put their own spin on Loesser classics such as "I'd Like To Get You On A Slow Boat to China," "Once In Love With Amy," "If I Were A Bell," "Let's Get Lost," "Luck Be A Lady," "I've Never Been In Love Before" "Inchworm," "Somebody, Somewhere," "Thumbelina," "Sit Down You're Rocking The Boat," and "I Believe In You," — as well as share some stories about Mr. Loesser's life and how some of his songs came to be written.

Lyricist, librettist, playwright, director, and producer Oscar Greeley Clendenning Hammerstein II is perhaps best known for his extraordinary work with composer Richard Rodgers on musicals and films such as The Sound Of Music, Oklahoma, South Pacific, Carousel, State Fair, and The King and I. Earlier in his career, however, he collaborated with many different composers including Rudolf Friml, Richard Whiting, Vincent Youmans, Sigmund Romberg, and Jerome Kern — with whom he created the ground-breaking musical Show Boat. During the course of Hammerstein’s 40-year career he earned many awards — including two Oscars, two Grammys, two Pulitzer prizes, and eight Tony awards. Will and Joe are honored to perform such classics as “Oh, What A Beautiful Morning,” “Edelweiss,” “Can’t Help Lovin’ That Man,” “Getting To Know You,” “Carefully Taught,” “Indian Love Call,” “Surry with the Fringe On Top,” “I Whistle a Happy Tune,” “Stouthearted Men” “Cockeyed Optimist,” “Climb Every Mountain,” “Hello, Young Lovers,” “It’s a Grand Night for Singing,” “Who?” and “Happy Talk.”

George and Ira Gershwin were brothers whose playful, witty songs — brimming with rhythm and harmony —epitomized the jazz age. Born to Russian parents who emigrated to New York City to escape persecution under Czar Alexander III, Ira and George initially pursued parallel paths as lyricist and composer, officially teaming up in 1924 to co-create the musical comedy Lady Be Good. This was followed by a string of hit Broadway shows — with stars such as Ethel Merman, Fred and Adele Astaire, Ginger Rogers and Gertrude Lawrence — including Oh Kay!, Funny Face, Strike Up The Band, Girl Crazy, and Of Thee I Sing, which was the first musical to win the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. 
The Gershwins also spent time in Hollywood, writing songs for movies such as Delicious, A Damsel In Distress, and The Goldwyn Follies — and collaborated with novelist DuBose Heyward on a ground-breaking opera, Porgy and Bess. Along with stories about the brothers’ collaborative process, Will and Joe bring Gershwin standards to life including “S Wonderful,” “Fascinating Rhythm,” “They All Laughed,” “Love Is Sweeping The Country,” “They Can’t Take That Away From Me,” “He Loves and She Loves” “Nice Work If You Can Get It,” “I Got Rhythm,” “Someone To Watch Over Me,” “A Foggy Day,” and “Summertime.”

Howard Hoagland Carmichael was one of America's most beloved songwriters. He also found fame as a singer-pianist, movie actor and television personality, but never lost his early affinity for jazz. Growing up in a musical household in Bloomington, Indiana, Hoagy often tagged along with his mother when she played the piano in silent movie theaters. Although he earned a law degree, his heart was always in music — and as his songwriting success grew, he moved to NYC and then Hollywood, creating songs which were recorded by Louis Armstrong, Tommy Dorsey, Ethel Waters, Margaret Whiting, Benny Goodman, Mildred Bailey, Bing Crosby, Billie Holiday, and Frank Sinatra. Singer Will McMillan and pianist Joe Reid delight in performing Carmichael classics including "Heart and Soul," "The Nearness of You," "Two Sleepy People," "Georgia On My Mind," "Skylark," "In the Cool, Cool, Cool of the Evening," “I Get Along Without You Very Well," “Bread and Gravy,” “The Lamplighter's Serenade,” "How Little We Know," and "Stardust."

His career on stage, in film, and in television lasted for over 70 years, and the list of songs written for Fred Astaire to perform on Broadway and in Hollywood is extraordinary — ranging from "A Fine Romance" and "Pick Yourself Up" (by Jerome Kern and Dorothy Fields) to "Isn't This a Lovely Day?" and "Top Hat, White Tie And Tails" (by Irving Berlin) to "Nice Work If You Can Get It" and "They Can't Take That Away From Me" (by George and Ira Gershwin) to "Night and Day" and "After You, Who?"

Harold Arlen earned his place in the history of American music by co-writing “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” for the 1939 movie The Wizard of Oz. Born the son of a cantor in Buffalo, NY, Arlen moved to New York City and wrote for Harlem's Cotton Club revues in the 20s — co-creating standards such as “Stormy Weather” and “I’ve Got The World On A String” for the Duke Ellington Orchestra and vocalist Ethel Waters. By the 30s, Harold Arlen had followed the migration of New York songwriters west to Hollywood where he was in demand writing for movie musicals. After the success of The Wizard of Oz, Arlen continued to write hit songs for 40 years. Pianist Joe Reid and vocalist Will McMillan breathe new life into Arlen’s beloved standards — including “Get Happy,” “It’s Only a Paper Moon,” “That Old Black Magic,” “Accentuate the Positive,” “Blues In The Night,” “Come Rain of Come Shine,” “If I Only Had A Brain,” “Let’s Fall In Love,” and, of course, “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.”

Edgar "Yip" Harburg was a lyricist and librettist who co-wrote some of the most beloved songs of the 20th century. He was born on the Lower East Side of Manhattan in 1896 — the youngest of ten children born to Yiddish-speaking Orthodox Jewish parents who had emigrated from Czarist Russia. After his early career as the co-owner of an electrical appliance company went bust at the start of the Great Depression, he devoted himself to creating songs on Broadway and later in Hollywood — where he wrote much of the script and co-wrote all of the songs for the movie THE WIZARD OF OZ. After his success on California, he returned to New York and helped create Broadway hits such as BLOOMER GIRL, FINIAN'S RAINBOW and JAMAICA. However, his life-long passion for social justice, racial equality, and labor unions led to him being blacklisted from doing any work in TV or movies from 1950 - 1962. Will and Joe will perform such classic songs as "April In Paris," "How Are Things In Glocca Morra?" "If I Only Had A Brain," "Old Devil Moon," "Brother, Can You Spare A Dime?" "We're Off To See The Wizard," "Look To The Rainbow," "Lydia, The Tattooed Lady," "Happiness Is A Thing Called Joe," and "Over The Rainbow" — as well as share a few stories about Yip's inspiring life and how some of his songs came to be written.

Sammy Cahn was a lyricist who co-wrote an extraordinary number of hit songs for Hollywood, Broadway, and Tin Pan Alley including: "I Fall in Love Too Easily," "I've Heard That Song Before," "It's Magic," "The Tender Trap," "Come Fly with Me," "The Second Time Around," "I Guess I'll Hang My Tears Out to Dry," "The Christmas Waltz," "It's Been a Long, Long Time," "Saturday Night Is the Loneliest Night of the Week," "Come Dance with Me," "Teach Me Tonight," and "Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!" He was born Samuel Cohen on the Lower East Side of Manhattan after his parents had emigrated from Galicia in Europe. He and his sisters all studied music, and as a teenager, Cahn joined a Dixieland band which toured in the Catskills. One of his early successes was co-writing songs for short films at Warner Brothers’ studio in Brooklyn, and he also created special material for up-and-coming performers such as Milton Berle, Danny Kaye, and Bob Hope. Cahn enjoyed hit recordings by Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Doris Day, the Tommy Dorsey band and many others and won four Academy Awards for Best Song in a Motion Picture: "Three Coins in the Fountain," "All the Way," "Call Me Irresponsible," and "High Hopes." Singer Will McMillan and jazz pianist Joe Reid will share an hour of Cahn’s great songs plus a few stories about the man himself and how he came to write so many hits!

Lyricist, librettist, playwright, director, and producer Oscar Greeley Clendenning Hammerstein II is perhaps best known for his extraordinary work with composer Richard Rodgers on musicals and films such as The Sound Of Music, Oklahoma, South Pacific, Carousel, State Fair, and The King and I. Earlier in his career, however, he collaborated with many different composers including Rudolf Friml, Richard Whiting, Vincent Youmans, Sigmund Romberg, and Jerome Kern — with whom he created the ground-breaking musical Show Boat. During the course of Hammerstein’s 40-year career he earned many awards — including two Oscars, two Grammys, two Pulitzer prizes, and eight Tony awards. Will and Joe are honored to perform such classics as “Oh, What A Beautiful Morning,” “Edelweiss,” “Can’t Help Lovin’ That Man,” “Getting To Know You,” “Carefully Taught,” “Indian Love Call,” “Surry with the Fringe On Top,” “I Whistle a Happy Tune,” “Stouthearted Men” “Cockeyed Optimist,” “Climb Every Mountain,” “Hello, Young Lovers,” “It’s a Grand Night for Singing,” “Who?” and “Happy Talk.”

His parents were vaudeville entertainers, and he and his beloved sister Josie joined the family act when they were children — touring all around the United States via railroad. Cohan wrote successful musicals, plays, and songs for many decades — often starring with members of his family — and received a Congressional Medal Of Honor from president Franklin Delano Roosevelt. After his death, Irving Berlin and Oscar Hammerstein raised money to build a statue in his honor which stands in Times Square to this day. His many hits include "You're a Grand Old Flag," "The Yankee Doodle Boy," "Nellie Kelly, I Love You," "Over There," "Mary Is a Grand Old Name," "Harrigan," and "Give My Regards to Broadway."

Harold Arlen earned his place in the history of American music by co-writing “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” for the 1939 movie The Wizard of Oz. Born the son of a cantor in Buffalo, NY, Arlen moved to New York City and wrote for Harlem's Cotton Club revues in the 20s — co-creating standards such as “Stormy Weather” and “I’ve Got The World On A String” for the Duke Ellington Orchestra and vocalist Ethel Waters. By the 30s, Harold Arlen had followed the migration of New York songwriters west to Hollywood where he was in demand writing for movie musicals. After the success of The Wizard of Oz, Arlen continued to write hit songs for 40 years. Pianist Joe Reid and vocalist Will McMillan breathe new life into Arlen’s beloved standards — including “Get Happy,” “It’s Only a Paper Moon,” “That Old Black Magic,” “Accentuate the Positive,” “Blues In The Night,” “Come Rain of Come Shine,” “If I Only Had A Brain,” “Let’s Fall In Love,” and, of course, “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.”

George and Ira Gershwin were brothers whose playful, witty songs — brimming with rhythm and harmony —epitomized the jazz age. Born to Russian parents who emigrated to New York City to escape persecution under Czar Alexander III, Ira and George initially pursued parallel paths as lyricist and composer, officially teaming up in 1924 to co-create the musical comedy Lady Be Good. This was followed by a string of hit Broadway shows — with stars such as Ethel Merman, Fred and Adele Astaire, Ginger Rogers and Gertrude Lawrence — including Oh Kay!, Funny Face, Strike Up The Band, Girl Crazy, and Of Thee I Sing, which was the first musical to win the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. 
The Gershwins also spent time in Hollywood, writing songs for movies such as Delicious, A Damsel In Distress, and The Goldwyn Follies — and collaborated with novelist DuBose Heyward on a ground-breaking opera, Porgy and Bess. Along with stories about the brothers’ collaborative process, Will and Joe bring Gershwin standards to life including “S Wonderful,” “Fascinating Rhythm,” “They All Laughed,” “Love Is Sweeping The Country,” “They Can’t Take That Away From Me,” “He Loves and She Loves,” “Nice Work If You Can Get It,” “I Got Rhythm,” “Someone To Watch Over Me,” “A Foggy Day,” and “Summertime.”

Composer Harry Warren (born Salvatore Guaragna on December 24, 1893) is one of the unsung heroes of Hollywood’s golden era. From 1931 - 1945, Harry Warren co-wrote more hit songs than Irving Berlin, and had more Oscar nominations for best song (11) and wins (3) than Berlin, George Gershwin, or Hoagie Carmichael. Warren also had more hit records — 42 songs! — on "Your Hit Parade" than any of his peers. Some of his standards include "Jeepers Creepers,” “We're in the Money," “Chattanooga Choo Choo,” “Lulu’s Back In Town,” "I Only Have Eyes for You," “The More I See You,” “Lullaby of Broadway,” “This Heart Of Mine,” "You'll Never Know,” “You Must Have Been A Beautiful Baby,” "42nd Street," “That's Amore,” and "At Last." Although a Brooklyn boy at heart, Warren ended up living in California for most of his adult life — working primarily for four movie studios: Warner Brothers in the 30s, 20th Century-Fox in the early 40s, MGM in the later 40s, and finally Paramount in the 50's. Warren’s songs have been in more movies — 109 —than any other composer, yet during his lifetime he did not receive anywhere near the acclaim as fellow composers such as Jerome Kern, Richard Rodgers, or Harold Arlen. Singer Will McMillan and jazz pianist Joe Reid will share a bunch of Warren’s great songs as well as stories about his life, his career in Hollywood, and how certain songs came to be written.

Lorenz Milton Hart was one of the greatest lyricists of the twentieth century. A child of German Jewish immigrants who grew up in New York City, Larry Hart and composer Richard Rodgers wrote some of the most enduring popular songs of all time — including "My Funny Valentine," "Blue Moon," "Manhattan," "Where or When," "The Lady Is a Tramp," "Dancing On the Ceiling," "Glad To Be Unhappy," "Isn't It Romantic," "Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered," "Johnny One Note," and "This Can't Be Love" — for more than 26 Broadway musicals and several movies. A life-long bachelor (and closeted gay man) who lived with his widowed mother, Hart suffered from alcoholism and later in his life would disappear for weeks at a time on binges, which created stress in his collaboration with Rodgers. According to Stephen Holden of The New York Times, "Many of Hart's lyrics were the confessional outpourings of a hopeless romantic who...stood just under five feet tall, wreathed himself in cigar smoke, (and) saw himself as an undesirable freak." Singer Will McMillan and jazz pianist Joe Mulholland will lovingly and respectfully perform many of Hart's best songs and share stories about how they came to be written.

Many great songs were written for her to sing, including "Over The Rainbow," "The Boy Next Door," "The Man That Got Away," "We're A Couple of Swells," "How About You?" "On The Atchison, Topeka and the Santa Fe," "Good Morning," "The Trolley Song," and "Have Yourself A Merry Littl Christmas." Will and Joe will perform these songs as well as winter holiday favorites — such as "Jingle Bells," Sleigh Ride," Winter Wonderland," "Deck The Halls," and "The Christmas Song" — which were featured in an episode of Judy's TV series which aired on December 22, 1963.

Many of America's most beloved winter holiday songs have been written or co-written by Jewish songwriters.

This show features songs such as "Winter Wonderland," "We Need A Little Christmas," "Silver Bells," "The Christmas Waltz," "Let It Snow, Let it Snow, Let It Snow," "The Christmas Song," "Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer," "Sleigh Ride," "Christmas Lullaby," "Count Your Blessings," "Happy Holiday," and "White Christmas" by songwriters including Irving Berlin, Jason Robert Brown, Sammy Cahn, Ray Evans, Jerry Herman, Jay Livingston, Johnny Marks, Mitchell Parish, Jule Styne, Mel Torme, and Bob Wells.

Composer Harry Warren (born Salvatore Guaragna on December 24, 1893) is one of the unsung heroes of Hollywood’s golden era. From 1931 - 1945, Harry Warren co-wrote more hit songs than Irving Berlin, and had more Oscar nominations for best song (11) and wins (3) than Berlin, George Gershwin, or Hoagie Carmichael. Warren also had more hit records — 42 songs! — on "Your Hit Parade" than any of his peers. Some of his standards include "Jeepers Creepers,” “We're in the Money," “Chattanooga Choo Choo,” “Lulu’s Back In Town,” "I Only Have Eyes for You," “The More I See You,” “Lullaby of Broadway,” “This Heart Of Mine,” "You'll Never Know,” “You Must Have Been A Beautiful Baby,” "42nd Street," “That's Amore,” and "At Last." Although a Brooklyn boy at heart, Warren ended up living in California for most of his adult life — working primarily for four movie studios: Warner Brothers in the 30s, 20th Century-Fox in the early 40s, MGM in the later 40s, and finally Paramount in the 50's. Warren’s songs have been in more movies — 109 —than any other composer, yet during his lifetime he did not receive anywhere near the acclaim as fellow composers such as Jerome Kern, Richard Rodgers, or Harold Arlen. Singer Will McMillan and jazz pianist Joe Reid will share a bunch of Warren’s great songs as well as stories about his life, his career in Hollywood, and how certain songs came to be written.

Sammy Cahn was a lyricist who co-wrote an extraordinary number of hit songs for Hollywood, Broadway, and Tin Pan Alley including: "I Fall in Love Too Easily," "I've Heard That Song Before," "It's Magic," "The Tender Trap," "Come Fly with Me," "The Second Time Around," "I Guess I'll Hang My Tears Out to Dry," "The Christmas Waltz," "It's Been a Long, Long Time," "Saturday Night Is the Loneliest Night of the Week," "Come Dance with Me," "Teach Me Tonight," and "Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow!" He was born Samuel Cohen on the Lower East Side of Manhattan after his parents had emigrated from Galicia in Europe. He and his sisters all studied music, and as a teenager, Cahn joined a Dixieland band which toured in the Catskills. One of his early successes was co-writing songs for short films at Warner Brothers’ studio in Brooklyn, and he also created special material for up-and-coming performers such as Milton Berle, Danny Kaye, and Bob Hope. Cahn enjoyed hit recordings by Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Doris Day, the Tommy Dorsey band and many others and won four Academy Awards for Best Song in a Motion Picture: "Three Coins in the Fountain," "All the Way," "Call Me Irresponsible," and "High Hopes." Singer Will McMillan and jazz pianist Joe Reid will share an hour of Cahn’s great songs plus a few stories about the man himself and how he came to write so many hits!

Actor, dancer, singer, and choreographer Fred Astaire (born Frederick Austerlitz on May 10, 1899 in Omaha, Nebraska) traveled all over the United States as a child and teenager, performing with his older sister Adele in an increasingly successful vaudeville act. His career on stage, in film, and in television lasted for over 70 years, and the list of songs written for Fred Astaire to perform on Broadway and in Hollywood is extraordinary — ranging from "A Fine Romance" and "Pick Yourself Up" (by Jerome Kern and Dorothy Fields) to "Isn't This a Lovely Day?" and "Top Hat, White Tie And Tails" (by Irving Berlin) to "Nice Work If You Can Get It" and "They Can't Take That Away From Me" (by George and Ira Gershwin) to "Night and Day" and "After You, Who?"

Singer Will McMillan and jazz pianist Joe Reid will perform a top-drawer selection of songs written for Mr. Astaire — including "A Foggy Day," "This Heart of Mine," "Fascinating Rhythm," "Let's Call The Whole Thing Off," "Let's Face The Music And Dance," "One For My Baby," "The Way You Look Tonight," and "Something's Gotta Give" — and will share a few stories about Fred's life and how certain songs came to be created.

Born and raised in Astoria, NY, Merman sang as a child for soldiers during the first World War, and got her big break when the Gershwin brothers cast her in their musical Girl Crazy. During her extraordinarily successful career on Broadway she starred in musicals by Cole Porter (who wrote "Anything Goes," "Down In The Depths on the 90th Floor," "You're The Top," and "Ridin' High" for her), Irving Berlin (who wrote "They Say It's Wonderful," "You're Just In Love," "I Got The Sun In The Morning," and "I Got Lost In His Arms" for her) and Jule Styne/Stephen Sondheim (who wrote "Everything's Coming Up Roses," "Small World," "Some People," and "You'll Never Get Away From Me" for her). Merman also made many movies and was a regular fixture on radio and television for decades — but her personal life was full of heart-ache and challenges.

Howard Hoagland Carmichael was one of America's most beloved songwriters. He also found fame as a singer-pianist, movie actor and television personality, but never lost his early affinity for jazz. Growing up in a musical household in Bloomington, Indiana, Hoagy often tagged along with his mother when she played the piano in silent movie theaters. Although he earned a law degree, his heart was always in music — and as his songwriting success grew, he moved to NYC and then Hollywood, creating songs which were recorded by Louis Armstrong, Tommy Dorsey, Ethel Waters, Margaret Whiting, Benny Goodman, Mildred Bailey, Bing Crosby, Billie Holiday, and Frank Sinatra. Singer Will McMillan and pianist Molly Ruggles delight in performing Carmichael classics including "Heart and Soul," "The Nearness of You," "Two Sleepy People," "Georgia On My Mind," "Skylark," "In the Cool, Cool, Cool of the Evening," “I Get Along Without You Very Well," “Bread and Gravy,” “The Lamplighter's Serenade,” "How Little We Know," and "Stardust."

George and Ira Gershwin were brothers whose playful, witty songs — brimming with rhythm and harmony —epitomized the jazz age. Born to Russian parents who emigrated to New York City to escape persecution under Czar Alexander III, Ira and George initially pursued parallel paths as lyricist and composer, officially teaming up in 1924 to co-create the musical comedy Lady Be Good. This was followed by a string of hit Broadway shows — with stars such as Ethel Merman, Fred and Adele Astaire, Ginger Rogers and Gertrude Lawrence — including Oh Kay!, Funny Face, Strike Up The Band, Girl Crazy, and Of Thee I Sing, which was the first musical to win the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. 
The Gershwins also spent time in Hollywood, writing songs for movies such as Delicious, A Damsel In Distress, and The Goldwyn Follies — and collaborated with novelist DuBose Heyward on a ground-breaking opera, Porgy and Bess. Along with stories about the brothers’ collaborative process, Will and Joe bring Gershwin standards to life including “S Wonderful,” “Fascinating Rhythm,” “They All Laughed,” “Love Is Sweeping The Country,” “They Can’t Take That Away From Me,” “He Loves and She Loves” “Nice Work If You Can Get It,” “I Got Rhythm,” “Someone To Watch Over Me,” “A Foggy Day,” and “Summertime.”

She co-wrote songs with over 15 composers, including Jimmy McHugh, Jerome Kern, Harold Arlen, Arthur Schwartz, and Sigmund Romberg — and won an Academy award in 1936 with Kern for “The Way You Look Tonight.” As a librettist, she and her brother Herbert collaborated on many hit shows with Cole Porter and Irving Berlin, including the Broadway classic Annie Get Your Gun. In a business dominated by men, Ms. Fields enjoyed a singularly successful career as a songwriter/librettist while also being a wife and mother. Although she may not have become a household name, she deserves to be one! Pianist Joe Reid and vocalist Will McMillan will share a bouquet of her hits — including “I Won’t Dance,” “If My Friends Could See Me Now,” “It’s Not Where You Start, It’s Where You Finish,” “Remind Me,” “You Couldn’t Be Cuter,” and “I’m In The Mood For Love” — as well as a few stories about how they came to be written.

George and Ira Gershwin were brothers whose playful, witty songs — brimming with rhythm and harmony —epitomized the jazz age. Born to Russian parents who emigrated to New York City to escape persecution under Czar Alexander III, Ira and George initially pursued parallel paths as lyricist and composer, officially teaming up in 1924 to co-create the musical comedy Lady Be Good. This was followed by a string of hit Broadway shows — with stars such as Ethel Merman, Fred and Adele Astaire, Ginger Rogers and Gertrude Lawrence — including Oh Kay!, Funny Face, Strike Up The Band, Girl Crazy, and Of Thee I Sing, which was the first musical to win the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. 
The Gershwins also spent time in Hollywood, writing songs for movies such as Delicious, A Damsel In Distress, and The Goldwyn Follies — and collaborated with novelist DuBose Heyward on a ground-breaking opera, Porgy and Bess. Along with stories about the brothers’ collaborative process, Will and Joe bring Gershwin standards to life including “S Wonderful,” “Fascinating Rhythm,” “They All Laughed,” “Love Is Sweeping The Country,” “They Can’t Take That Away From Me,” “He Loves and She Loves” “Nice Work If You Can Get It,” “I Got Rhythm,” “Someone To Watch Over Me,” “A Foggy Day,” and “Summertime.”

Composer Harry Warren (born Salvatore Guaragna on December 24, 1893) is one of the unsung heroes of Hollywood’s golden era. From 1931 - 1945, Harry Warren co-wrote more hit songs than Irving Berlin, and had more Oscar nominations for best song (11) and wins (3) than Berlin, George Gershwin, or Hoagie Carmichael. Warren also had more hit records — 42 songs! — on "Your Hit Parade" than any of his peers. Some of his standards include "Jeepers Creepers,” “We're in the Money," “Chattanooga Choo Choo,” “Lulu’s Back In Town,” "I Only Have Eyes for You," “The More I See You,” “Lullaby of Broadway,” “This Heart Of Mine,” "You'll Never Know,” “You Must Have Been A Beautiful Baby,” "42nd Street," “That's Amore,” and "At Last." Although a Brooklyn boy at heart, Warren ended up living in California for most of his adult life — working primarily for four movie studios: Warner Brothers in the 30s, 20th Century-Fox in the early 40s, MGM in the later 40s, and finally Paramount in the 50's. Warren’s songs have been in more movies — 109 —than any other composer, yet during his lifetime he did not receive anywhere near the acclaim as fellow composers such as Jerome Kern, Richard Rodgers, or Harold Arlen. Singer Will McMillan and jazz pianist Joe Reid will share a bunch of Warren’s great songs as well as stories about his life, his career in Hollywood, and how certain songs came to be written.

Harold Arlen earned his place in the history of American music by co-writing “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” for the 1939 movie The Wizard of Oz. Born the son of a cantor in Buffalo, NY, Arlen moved to New York City and wrote for Harlem's Cotton Club revues in the 20s — co-creating standards such as “Stormy Weather” and “I’ve Got The World On A String” for the Duke Ellington Orchestra and vocalist Ethel Waters. By the 30s, Harold Arlen had followed the migration of New York songwriters west to Hollywood where he was in demand writing for movie musicals. After the success of The Wizard of Oz, Arlen continued to write hit songs for 40 years. Pianist Joe Reid and vocalist Will McMillan breathe new life into Arlen’s beloved standards — including “Get Happy,” “It’s Only a Paper Moon,” “That Old Black Magic,” “Accentuate the Positive,” “Blues In The Night,” “Come Rain of Come Shine,” “If I Only Had A Brain,” “Let’s Fall In Love,” and, of course, “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.”

Joe Mulholland and Will McMillan perform songs written or co-written by Hoagy Carmichael during a luncheon leading up an inspiring talk by Middlesex DA Marian Ryan about how not to get scammed. Howard Hoagland Carmichael was one of America's most beloved songwriters. He also found fame as a singer-pianist, movie actor and television personality, but never lost his early affinity for jazz. Growing up in a musical household in Bloomington, Indiana, Hoagy often tagged along with his mother when she played the piano in silent movie theaters. Although he earned a law degree, his heart was always in music — and as his songwriting success grew, he moved to NYC and then Hollywood, creating songs which were recorded by Louis Armstrong, Tommy Dorsey, Ethel Waters, Margaret Whiting, Benny Goodman, Mildred Bailey, Bing Crosby, Billie Holiday, and Frank Sinatra. Will and Joe delight in performing Carmichael classics including "Heart and Soul," "The Nearness of You," "Two Sleepy People," "Georgia On My Mind," "Skylark," "In the Cool, Cool, Cool of the Evening," “I Get Along Without You Very Well," “Bread and Gravy,” “The Lamplighter's Serenade,” "How Little We Know," and "Stardust."

Jerome David Kern left a legacy of over seven hundred songs — written for more than one hundred stage productions and Hollywood films. His best-known work,Show Boat, broke new ground in 1927 with its realistic characters, controversial subject matter, and dramatically integrated songs. Never before had issues of miscegenation, wife desertion, alcoholism, and gambling been the subject of a hit musical — one which continues to be revived to this day. Kern collaborated with many great lyricists — including Oscar Hammerstein II, Otto Harbach, P. G. Wodehouse, E.Y. (“Yip”) Harburg, Ira Gershwin, Johnny Mercer, Jimmy McHugh, and Dorothy Fields — and his songs won the Academy Award for Best Song in a Motion Picture twice. Singer Will McMillan and pianist Joe Reid find great pleasure in performing Kern classics including "Pick Yourself Up," "I Won’t Dance," "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes," "The Song Is You," "All The Things You Are," “The Folks Who Live On The Hill," "Make Believe," “Ol’ Man River,” “The Way You Look Tonight,” “Bill,” "I’m Old Fashioned," and “Can’t Help Lovin’ That Man."

His career on stage, in film, and in television lasted for over 70 years, and the list of songs written for Fred Astaire to perform on Broadway and in Hollywood is extraordinary — ranging from "A Fine Romance" and "Pick Yourself Up" (by Jerome Kern and Dorothy Fields) to "Isn't This a Lovely Day?" and "Top Hat, White Tie And Tails" (by Irving Berlin) to "Nice Work If You Can Get It" and "They Can't Take That Away From Me" (by George and Ira Gershwin) to "Night and Day" and "After You, Who?"

George and Ira Gershwin were brothers whose playful, witty songs — brimming with rhythm and harmony —epitomized the jazz age. Born to Russian parents who emigrated to New York City to escape persecution under Czar Alexander III, Ira and George initially pursued parallel paths as lyricist and composer, officially teaming up in 1924 to co-create the musical comedy Lady Be Good. This was followed by a string of hit Broadway shows — with stars such as Ethel Merman, Fred and Adele Astaire, Ginger Rogers and Gertrude Lawrence — including Oh Kay!, Funny Face, Strike Up The Band, Girl Crazy, and Of Thee I Sing, which was the first musical to win the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. 
The Gershwins also spent time in Hollywood, writing songs for movies such as Delicious, A Damsel In Distress, and The Goldwyn Follies — and collaborated with novelist DuBose Heyward on a ground-breaking opera, Porgy and Bess. Along with stories about the brothers’ collaborative process, Will and Joe bring Gershwin standards to life including “S Wonderful,” “Fascinating Rhythm,” “They All Laughed,” “Love Is Sweeping The Country,” “They Can’t Take That Away From Me,” “He Loves and She Loves” “Nice Work If You Can Get It,” “I Got Rhythm,” “Someone To Watch Over Me,” “A Foggy Day,” and “Summertime.”

Actor, dancer, singer, and choreographer Fred Astaire (born Frederick Austerlitz on May 10, 1899 in Omaha, Nebraska) traveled all over the United States as a child and teenager, performing with his older sister Adele in an increasingly successful vaudeville act. His career on stage, in film, and in television lasted for over 70 years, and the list of songs written for Fred Astaire to perform on Broadway and in Hollywood is extraordinary — ranging from "A Fine Romance" and "Pick Yourself Up" (by Jerome Kern and Dorothy Fields) to "Isn't This a Lovely Day?" and "Top Hat, White Tie And Tails" (by Irving Berlin) to "Nice Work If You Can Get It" and "They Can't Take That Away From Me" (by George and Ira Gershwin) to "Night and Day" and "After You, Who?" (by Cole Porter). Singer Will McMillan and jazz pianist Joe Reid will perform a top-drawer selection of songs written for Mr. Astaire — including "A Foggy Day," "This Heart of Mine," "Fascinating Rhythm," "Let's Call The Whole Thing Off," "Let's Face The Music And Dance," "One For My Baby," "The Way You Look Tonight," and "Something's Gotta Give" — and will share a few stories about Fred's life and how certain songs came to be created.

Harold Arlen earned his place in the history of American music by co-writing “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” for the 1939 movie The Wizard of Oz. Born the son of a cantor in Buffalo, NY, Arlen moved to New York City and wrote for Harlem's Cotton Club revues in the 20s — co-creating standards such as “Stormy Weather” and “I’ve Got The World On A String” for the Duke Ellington Orchestra and vocalist Ethel Waters. By the 30s, Harold Arlen had followed the migration of New York songwriters west to Hollywood where he was in demand writing for movie musicals. After the success of The Wizard of Oz, Arlen continued to write hit songs for 40 years. Pianist Joe Reid and vocalist Will McMillan breathe new life into Arlen’s beloved standards — including “Get Happy,” “It’s Only a Paper Moon,” “That Old Black Magic,” “Accentuate the Positive,” “Blues In The Night,” “Come Rain of Come Shine,” “If I Only Had A Brain,” “Let’s Fall In Love,” and, of course, “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.”

Lyricist, librettist, playwright, director, and producer Oscar Greeley Clendenning Hammerstein II is perhaps best known for his extraordinary work with composer Richard Rodgers on musicals and films such as The Sound Of Music, Oklahoma, South Pacific, Carousel, State Fair, and The King and I. Earlier in his career, however, he collaborated with many different composers including Rudolf Friml, Richard Whiting, Vincent Youmans, Sigmund Romberg, and Jerome Kern — with whom he created the ground-breaking musical Show Boat. During the course of Hammerstein’s 40-year career he earned many awards — including two Oscars, two Grammys, two Pulitzer prizes, and eight Tony awards. Will and Joe are honored to perform such classics as “Oh, What A Beautiful Morning,” “Edelweiss,” “Can’t Help Lovin’ That Man,” “Getting To Know You,” “Carefully Taught,” “Indian Love Call,” “Surry with the Fringe On Top,” “I Whistle a Happy Tune,” “Stouthearted Men” “Cockeyed Optimist,” “Climb Every Mountain,” “Hello, Young Lovers,” “It’s a Grand Night for Singing,” “Who?” and “Happy Talk.”

Ethel Merman (January 16, 1908 – February 15, 1984) was a star on Broadway for over four decades — introducing standards such as "I Got Rhythm," "It's De-Lovely," "I Get A Kick Out Of You," "There's No Business Like Show Business," and "Life Is Just A Bowl Of Cherries." Born and raised in Astoria, NY, Merman sang as a child for soldiers during the first World War, and got her big break when the Gershwin brothers cast her in their musical Girl Crazy. During her extraordinarily successful career on Broadway she starred in musicals by Cole Porter (who wrote "Anything Goes," "Down In The Depths on the 90th Floor," "You're The Top," and "Ridin' High" for her), Irving Berlin (who wrote "They Say It's Wonderful," "You're Just In Love," "I Got The Sun In The Morning," and "I Got Lost In His Arms" for her) and Jule Styne/Stephen Sondheim (who wrote "Everything's Coming Up Roses," "Small World," "Some People," and "You'll Never Get Away From Me" for her). Merman also made many movies and was a regular fixture on radio and television for decades — but her personal life was full of heart-ache and challenges. Pianist Joe Reid and vocalist Will McMillan bring her hits to life and share a few stories about her astounding career.

Lorenz Milton Hart was one of the greatest lyricists of the twentieth century. A child of German Jewish immigrants who grew up in New York City, Larry Hart and composer Richard Rodgers wrote some of the most enduring popular songs of all time — including "My Funny Valentine," "Blue Moon," "Manhattan," "Where or When," "The Lady Is a Tramp," "Dancing On the Ceiling," "Glad To Be Unhappy," "Isn't It Romantic," "Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered," "Johnny One Note," and "This Can't Be Love" — for more than 26 Broadway musicals and several movies. A life-long bachelor (and closeted gay man) who lived with his widowed mother, Hart suffered from alcoholism and later in his life would disappear for weeks at a time on binges, which created stress in his collaboration with Rodgers. According to Stephen Holden of The New York Times, "Many of Hart's lyrics were the confessional outpourings of a hopeless romantic who...stood just under five feet tall, wreathed himself in cigar smoke, (and) saw himself as an undesirable freak." Singer Will McMillan and jazz pianist Joe Mulholland will lovingly and respectfully perform many of Hart's best songs and share stories about how they came to be written.

THE GLORIOUS SONGS OF HART AND HAMMERSTEIN 
SATURDAY, JANUARY 20, 2018 | 7:00 PM

Joe and I are excited to returning to "Not Just Another Coffeehouse" in Sharon, MA. We will be sharing songs by two of two of the greatest lyricists of the twentieth century — Lorenz Hart and Oscar Hammerstein II. With composer Richard Rodgers, Hart wrote some of the most enduring popular songs of all time — including "My Funny Valentine," "Blue Moon," "Manhattan," "Where or When," and "The Lady Is a Tramp.” As Hart’s mental and physical health declined, however, Rodgers began collaborating with Oscar Hammerstein — who had already built a stellar career working with composers such as Jerome Kern and Sigmund Romberg. Together they created such classic songs as “Oh, What A Beautiful Morning,” “Edelweiss,” “Getting To Know You,” “I Whistle a Happy Tune,” and “It’s a Grand Night for Singing.” We will breathe new life into these beloved standards and share a few stories about how they came to be written in two sets of music — one for Hart and one for Hammerstein — with many opportunities to sing along. We hope you can join us!

Singer Will McMillan and jazz pianist Joe Reid will share 45 minutes of Cahn’s great songs plus a few stories about the man himself and how he came to write so many hits!

Jule Styne was born in London to Jewish immigrants from the Ukraine who ran a small grocery. When he was eight, his family moved to Chicago, where he performed as a pianist with the Chicago, St. Louis and Detroit Symphonies. By age thirteen he was playing in the pit orchestra of a burlesque house, and by age fifteen he had formed his own dance band. In 1934 he moved to New York City — working as an accompanist for Sophie Tucker — and then to Hollywood, where he found employment as a vocal coach for Shirley Temple, Mary Martin and Alice Faye. A man of enormous energy and personal magnetism, Styne would often work on three or four movie and theater projects simultaneously — partly because he was often in debt due to a lifelong gambling addiction. He co-wrote over 1500 songs with lyricists such as Frank Loesser, Sammy Cahn, Yip Harburg, Stephen Sondheim, Bob Merrill, Betty Comden, and Adolph Green. Along with stories about Styne’s extraordinary career, vocalist Will McMillan and pianist Joe Reid joyfully share his standards including "Neverland" (from Peter Pan); "People" (from Funny Girl); "Let Me Entertain You," "Everything's Coming Up Roses," and "Together Wherever We Go” (from Gypsy); "The Party's Over” and “Just In Time” (from Bells Are Ringing); "I've Heard That Song Before," "It's Been A Long, Long Time," "Guess I'll Hang My Tears Out To Dry," "Let It Snow!" "I Don’t Want to Walk Without You," and "Make Someone Happy."

You may not recognize her name, but you probably know lots of songs for which Dorothy Fields wrote lyrics such as “I Can’t Give You Anything But Love,” “On The Sunny Side Of The Street,” “Hey, Big Spender,” and “Pick Yourself Up.” Born into a show business family in 1904, Ms. Fields worked as a lyricist for almost fifty years — starting with hit songs in the 1920s for a Cotton Club revue featuring Duke Ellington right through a triumphant collaboration with Cy Coleman, Neil Simon, Gwen Verdon and Bob Fosse on Sweet Charity in the 1960s. She co-wrote songs with over 15 composers, including Jimmy McHugh, Jerome Kern, Harold Arlen, Arthur Schwartz, and Sigmund Romberg — and won an Academy award in 1936 with Kern for “The Way You Look Tonight.” As a librettist, she and her brother Herbert collaborated on many hit shows with Cole Porter and Irving Berlin, including the Broadway classic Annie Get Your Gun. In a business dominated by men, Ms. Fields enjoyed a singularly successful career as a songwriter/librettist while also being a wife and mother. Although she may not have become a household name, she deserves to be one! Pianist Joe Reid and vocalist Will McMillan will share a bouquet of her hits — including “I Won’t Dance,” “If My Friends Could See Me Now,” “It’s Not Where You Start, It’s Where You Finish,” “Remind Me,” “You Couldn’t Be Cuter,” and “I’m In The Mood For Love” — as well as a few stories about how they came to be written.

Harold Arlen earned his place in the history of American music by co-writing “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” for the 1939 movie The Wizard of Oz. Born the son of a cantor in Buffalo, NY, Arlen moved to New York City and wrote for Harlem's Cotton Club revues in the 20s — co-creating standards such as “Stormy Weather” and “I’ve Got The World On A String” for the Duke Ellington Orchestra and vocalist Ethel Waters. By the 30s, Harold Arlen had followed the migration of New York songwriters west to Hollywood where he was in demand writing for movie musicals. After the success of The Wizard of Oz, Arlen continued to write hit songs for 40 years. Pianist Joe Reid and vocalist Will McMillan breathe new life into Arlen’s beloved standards — including “Get Happy,” “It’s Only a Paper Moon,” “That Old Black Magic,” “Accentuate the Positive,” “Blues In The Night,” “Come Rain of Come Shine,” “If I Only Had A Brain,” “Let’s Fall In Love,” and, of course, “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.”

Howard Hoagland Carmichael was one of America's most beloved songwriters. He also found fame as a singer-pianist, movie actor and television personality, but never lost his early affinity for jazz. Growing up in a musical household in Bloomington, Indiana, Hoagy often tagged along with his mother when she played the piano in silent movie theaters. Although he earned a law degree, his heart was always in music — and as his songwriting success grew, he moved to NYC and then Hollywood, creating songs which were recorded by Louis Armstrong, Tommy Dorsey, Ethel Waters, Margaret Whiting, Benny Goodman, Mildred Bailey, Bing Crosby, Billie Holiday, and Frank Sinatra. Singer Will McMillan and pianist Joe Reid delight in performing Carmichael classics including "Heart and Soul," "The Nearness of You," "Two Sleepy People," "Georgia On My Mind," "Skylark," "In the Cool, Cool, Cool of the Evening," “I Get Along Without You Very Well," “Bread and Gravy,” “The Lamplighter's Serenade,” "How Little We Know," and "Stardust."

George and Ira Gershwin were brothers whose playful, witty songs — brimming with rhythm and harmony —epitomized the jazz age. Born to Russian parents who emigrated to New York City to escape persecution under Czar Alexander III, Ira and George initially pursued parallel paths as lyricist and composer, officially teaming up in 1924 to co-create the musical comedy Lady Be Good. This was followed by a string of hit Broadway shows — with stars such as Ethel Merman, Fred and Adele Astaire, Ginger Rogers and Gertrude Lawrence — including Oh Kay!, Funny Face, Strike Up The Band, Girl Crazy, and Of Thee I Sing, which was the first musical to win the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The Gershwins also spent time in Hollywood, writing songs for movies such as Delicious, A Damsel In Distress, and The Goldwyn Follies — and collaborated with novelist DuBose Heyward on a ground-breaking opera, Porgy and Bess. Along with stories about the brothers’ collaborative process, Will and Joe bring Gershwin standards to life including “S Wonderful,” “Fascinating Rhythm,” “They All Laughed,” “Love Is Sweeping The Country,” “They Can’t Take That Away From Me,” “He Loves and She Loves” “Nice Work If You Can Get It,” “I Got Rhythm,” “Someone To Watch Over Me,” “A Foggy Day,” and “Summertime.”

Born the son of a cantor in Buffalo, NY, Arlen moved to New York City and wrote for Harlem's Cotton Club revues in the 20s — co-creating standards such as “Stormy Weather” and “I’ve Got The World On A String” for the Duke Ellington Orchestra and vocalist Ethel Waters. By the 30s, Harold Arlen had followed the migration of New York songwriters west to Hollywood where he was in demand writing for movie musicals. After the success of The Wizard of Oz, Arlen continued to write hit songs for 40 years. Pianist Joe Reid and vocalist Will McMillan breathe new life into Arlen’s beloved standards — including “Get Happy,” “It’s Only a Paper Moon,” “That Old Black Magic,” “Accentuate the Positive,” “Blues In The Night,” “Come Rain of Come Shine,” “If I Only Had A Brain,” “Let’s Fall In Love,” and, of course, “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.”

Lyricist, librettist, playwright, director, and producer Oscar Greeley Clendenning Hammerstein II is perhaps best known for his extraordinary work with composer Richard Rodgers on musicals and films such as The Sound Of Music, Oklahoma, South Pacific, Carousel, State Fair, and The King and I. Earlier in his career, however, he collaborated with many different composers including Rudolf Friml, Richard Whiting, Vincent Youmans, Sigmund Romberg, and Jerome Kern — with whom he created the ground-breaking musical Show Boat. During the course of Hammerstein’s 40-year career he earned many awards — including two Oscars, two Grammys, two Pulitzer prizes, and eight Tony awards. Will and Joe are honored to perform such classics as “Oh, What A Beautiful Morning,” “Edelweiss,” “Can’t Help Lovin’ That Man,” “Getting To Know You,” “Carefully Taught,” “Indian Love Call,” “Surry with the Fringe On Top,” “I Whistle a Happy Tune,” “Stouthearted Men” “Cockeyed Optimist,” “Climb Every Mountain,” “Hello, Young Lovers,” “It’s a Grand Night for Singing,” “Who?” and “Happy Talk.”

Jerome David Kern left a legacy of over seven hundred songs — written for more than one hundred stage productions and Hollywood films. His best-known work,Show Boat, broke new ground in 1927 with its realistic characters, controversial subject matter, and dramatically integrated songs. Never before had issues of miscegenation, wife desertion, alcoholism, and gambling been the subject of a hit musical — one which continues to be revived to this day. Kern collaborated with many great lyricists — including Oscar Hammerstein II, Otto Harbach, P. G. Wodehouse, E.Y. (“Yip”) Harburg, Ira Gershwin, Johnny Mercer, Jimmy McHugh, and Dorothy Fields — and his songs won the Academy Award for Best Song in a Motion Picture twice. Singer Will McMillan and pianist Joe Reid find great pleasure in performing Kern classics including "Pick Yourself Up," "I Won’t Dance," "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes," "The Song Is You," "All The Things You Are," “The Folks Who Live On The Hill," "Make Believe," “Ol’ Man River,” “The Way You Look Tonight,” “Bill,” "I’m Old Fashioned," and “Can’t Help Lovin’ That Man."

George and Ira Gershwin were brothers whose playful, witty songs — brimming with rhythm and harmony —epitomized the jazz age. Born to Russian parents who emigrated to New York City to escape persecution under Czar Alexander III, Ira and George initially pursued parallel paths as lyricist and composer, officially teaming up in 1924 to co-create the musical comedy Lady Be Good. This was followed by a string of hit Broadway shows — with stars such as Ethel Merman, Fred and Adele Astaire, Ginger Rogers and Gertrude Lawrence — including Oh Kay!, Funny Face, Strike Up The Band, Girl Crazy, and Of Thee I Sing, which was the first musical to win the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. 
The Gershwins also spent time in Hollywood, writing songs for movies such as Delicious, A Damsel In Distress, and The Goldwyn Follies — and collaborated with novelist DuBose Heyward on a ground-breaking opera, Porgy and Bess. Along with stories about the brothers’ collaborative process, Will and Joe bring Gershwin standards to life including “S Wonderful,” “Fascinating Rhythm,” “They All Laughed,” “Love Is Sweeping The Country,” “They Can’t Take That Away From Me,” “He Loves and She Loves” “Nice Work If You Can Get It,” “I Got Rhythm,” “Someone To Watch Over Me,” “A Foggy Day,” and “Summertime.”

Ethel Merman (January 16, 1908 – February 15, 1984) was a star on Broadway for over four decades — introducing standards such as "I Got Rhythm," "It's De-Lovely," "I Get A Kick Out Of You," "There's No Business Like Show Business," and "Life Is Just A Bowl Of Cherries." Born and raised in Astoria, NY, Merman sang as a child for soldiers during the first World War, and got her big break when the Gershwin brothers cast her in their musical Girl Crazy. During her extraordinarily successful career on Broadway she starred in musicals by Cole Porter (who wrote "Anything Goes," "Down In The Depths on the 90th Floor," "You're The Top," and "Ridin' High" for her), Irving Berlin (who wrote "They Say It's Wonderful," "You're Just In Love," "I Got The Sun In The Morning," and "I Got Lost In His Arms" for her) and Jule Styne/Stephen Sondheim (who wrote "Everything's Coming Up Roses," "Small World," "Some People," and "You'll Never Get Away From Me" for her). Merman also made many movies and was a regular fixture on radio and television for decades — but her personal life was full of heart-ache and challenges. Pianist Joe Reid and vocalist Will McMillan bring her hits to life and share a few stories about her astounding career.

FALLING IN LOVE WITH LOVE 
TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 14, 2017 | 4:00 PM 
Will McMillan with Joe Mulholland on piano 
Lorenz Milton Hart was one of the greatest lyricists of the twentieth century. A child of German Jewish immigrants who grew up in New York City, Larry Hart and composer Richard Rodgers wrote some of the most enduring popular songs of all time — including "My Funny Valentine," "Blue Moon," "Manhattan," "Where or When," "The Lady Is a Tramp," "Dancing On the Ceiling," "Glad To Be Unhappy," "Isn't It Romantic," "Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered," "Johnny One Note," and "This Can't Be Love" — for more than 26 Broadway musicals and several movies. A life-long bachelor (and closeted gay man) who lived with his widowed mother, Hart suffered from alcoholism and later in his life would disappear for weeks at a time on binges, which created stress in his collaboration with Rodgers. According to Stephen Holden of The New York Times, "Many of Hart's lyrics were the confessional outpourings of a hopeless romantic who...stood just under five feet tall, wreathed himself in cigar smoke, (and) saw himself as an undesirable freak." Singer Will McMillan and jazz pianist Joe Mulholland will lovingly and respectfully perform many of Hart's best songs and share stories about how they came to be written.

This show features songs such as "Winter Wonderland," "We Need A Little Christmas," "Silver Bells," "The Christmas Waltz," "Let It Snow, Let it Snow, Let It Snow," "The Christmas Song," "Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer," "Sleigh Ride," "Christmas Lullaby," "Count Your Blessings," "Happy Holiday," and "White Christmas" by songwriters including Irving Berlin, Jason Robert Brown, Sammy Cahn, Ray Evans, Jerry Herman, Jay Livingston, Johnny Marks, Mitchell Parish, Jule Styne, Mel Torme, and Bob Wells.

Jerome David Kern left a legacy of over seven hundred songs — written for more than one hundred stage productions and Hollywood films. His best-known work,Show Boat, broke new ground in 1927 with its realistic characters, controversial subject matter, and dramatically integrated songs. Never before had issues of miscegenation, wife desertion, alcoholism, and gambling been the subject of a hit musical — one which continues to be revived to this day. Kern collaborated with many great lyricists — including Oscar Hammerstein II, Otto Harbach, P. G. Wodehouse, E.Y. (“Yip”) Harburg, Ira Gershwin, Johnny Mercer, Jimmy McHugh, and Dorothy Fields — and his songs won the Academy Award for Best Song in a Motion Picture twice. Singer Will McMillan and pianist Joe Reid find great pleasure in performing Kern classics including "Pick Yourself Up," "I Won’t Dance," "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes," "The Song Is You," "All The Things You Are," “The Folks Who Live On The Hill," "Make Believe," “Ol’ Man River,” “The Way You Look Tonight,” “Bill,” "I’m Old Fashioned," and “Can’t Help Lovin’ That Man."

Harold Arlen earned his place in the history of American music by co-writing “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” for the 1939 movie The Wizard of Oz. Born the son of a cantor in Buffalo, NY, Arlen moved to New York City and wrote for Harlem's Cotton Club revues in the 20s — co-creating standards such as “Stormy Weather” and “I’ve Got The World On A String” for the Duke Ellington Orchestra and vocalist Ethel Waters. By the 30s, Harold Arlen had followed the migration of New York songwriters west to Hollywood where he was in demand writing for movie musicals. After the success of The Wizard of Oz, Arlen continued to write hit songs for 40 years. Pianist Joe Reid and vocalist Will McMillan breathe new life into Arlen’s beloved standards — including “Get Happy,” “It’s Only a Paper Moon,” “That Old Black Magic,” “Accentuate the Positive,” “Blues In The Night,” “Come Rain of Come Shine,” “If I Only Had A Brain,” “Let’s Fall In Love,” and, of course, “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.”

Lyricist, librettist, playwright, director, and producer Oscar Greeley Clendenning Hammerstein II is perhaps best known for his extraordinary work with composer Richard Rodgers on musicals and films such as The Sound Of Music, Oklahoma, South Pacific, Carousel, State Fair, and The King and I. Earlier in his career, however, he collaborated with many different composers including Rudolf Friml, Richard Whiting, Vincent Youmans, Sigmund Romberg, and Jerome Kern — with whom he created the ground-breaking musical Show Boat. During the course of Hammerstein’s 40-year career he earned many awards — including two Oscars, two Grammys, two Pulitzer prizes, and eight Tony awards. Will and Joe are honored to perform such classics as “Oh, What A Beautiful Morning,” “Edelweiss,” “Can’t Help Lovin’ That Man,” “Getting To Know You,” “Carefully Taught,” “Indian Love Call,” “Surry with the Fringe On Top,” “I Whistle a Happy Tune,” “Stouthearted Men” “Cockeyed Optimist,” “Climb Every Mountain,” “Hello, Young Lovers,” “It’s a Grand Night for Singing,” “Who?” and “Happy Talk.”

Howard Hoagland Carmichael was one of America's most beloved songwriters. He also found fame as a singer-pianist, movie actor and television personality, but never lost his early affinity for jazz. Growing up in a musical household in Bloomington, Indiana, Hoagy often tagged along with his mother when she played the piano in silent movie theaters. Although he earned a law degree, his heart was always in music — and as his songwriting success grew, he moved to NYC and then Hollywood, creating songs which were recorded by Louis Armstrong, Tommy Dorsey, Ethel Waters, Margaret Whiting, Benny Goodman, Mildred Bailey, Bing Crosby, Billie Holiday, and Frank Sinatra. Singer Will McMillan and pianist Joe Reid delight in performing Carmichael classics including "Heart and Soul," "The Nearness of You," "Two Sleepy People," "Georgia On My Mind," "Skylark," "In the Cool, Cool, Cool of the Evening," “I Get Along Without You Very Well," “Bread and Gravy,” “Small Fry,” "How Little We Know," and "Stardust."

George and Ira Gershwin were brothers whose playful, witty songs — brimming with rhythm and harmony —epitomized the jazz age. Born to Russian parents who emigrated to New York City to escape persecution under Czar Alexander III, Ira and George initially pursued parallel paths as lyricist and composer, officially teaming up in 1924 to co-create the musical comedy Lady Be Good. This was followed by a string of hit Broadway shows — with stars such as Ethel Merman, Fred and Adele Astaire, Ginger Rogers and Gertrude Lawrence — including Oh Kay!, Funny Face, Strike Up The Band, Girl Crazy, and Of Thee I Sing, which was the first musical to win the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The Gershwins also spent time in Hollywood, writing songs for movies such as Delicious, A Damsel In Distress, and The Goldwyn Follies — and collaborated with novelist DuBose Heyward on a ground-breaking opera, Porgy and Bess. Along with stories about the brothers’ collaborative process, Will and Joe bring Gershwin standards to life including “S Wonderful,” “Fascinating Rhythm,” “They All Laughed,” “Love Is Sweeping The Country,” “They Can’t Take That Away From Me,” “He Loves and She Loves” “Nice Work If You Can Get It,” “I Got Rhythm,” “Someone To Watch Over Me,” “A Foggy Day,” and “Summertime.”

Will began creating songs using GarageBand software and his trusty laptop computer after taking a class called “Ukulele for the Almost Musical” in 2010. With help from gifted pianist/composer Doug Hammer, McMillan has translated his ukulele-driven GarageBand renditions into playful piano + vocal arrangements which they will perform with guest vocalist Jinny Sagorin at one of their favorite venues — Third Life Studio.

Lorenz Milton Hart was one of the greatest lyricists of the twentieth century. A child of German Jewish immigrants who grew up in New York City, Larry Hart and composer Richard Rodgers wrote some of the most enduring popular songs of all time — including "My Funny Valentine," "Blue Moon," "Manhattan," "Where or When," "Mountain Greenery," "The Lady Is a Tramp," "Dancing On the Ceiling," "Glad To Be Unhappy." "Isn't It Romantic," "Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered," "Johnny One Note," "Little Girl Blue," and "This Can't Be Love" — for more than 26 Broadway musicals and several movies. A life-long bachelor who lived with his widowed mother, Hart suffered from alcoholism and later in his life would disappear for weeks at a time on binges, which created stress in his collaboration with Rodgers. According to Stephen Holden of The New York Times, "Many of Hart's lyrics were the confessional outpourings of a hopeless romantic who loathed his own body… Hart, who stood just under five feet tall and wreathed himself in cigar smoke, saw himself as an undesirable freak. Homosexual in the era of the closet, he pursued a tormented erotic life of which only hints appear in his songs." Singer Will McMillan and jazz pianist Joe Reid will perform many of Hart's best songs and share stories about how they came to be written.

Homosexual in the era of the closet, he pursued a tormented erotic life of which only hints appear in his songs." Singer Will McMillan and jazz pianist Joe Reid will perform many of Hart's best songs and share stories about how they came to be written.

OVER THE RAINBOW: 
A BENEFIT CONCERT TO RAISE MONEY FOR SYRIAN REFUGEES 
SUNDAY, JANUARY 31, 2016 | 3:00 PM 
Will McMillan with Joe Reid on piano 
Harold Arlen earned his place in the history of American music by co-writing “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” for the 1939 movie The Wizard of Oz. Born the son of a cantor in Buffalo, NY, Arlen moved to New York City and wrote for Harlem's Cotton Club revues in the 20s — co-creating standards such as “Stormy Weather” and “I’ve Got The World On A String” for the Duke Ellington Orchestra and vocalist Ethel Waters. By the 30s, Harold Arlen had followed the migration of New York songwriters west to Hollywood where he was in demand writing for movie musicals. After the success of The Wizard of Oz, Arlen continued to write hit songs for 40 years. Pianist Joe Reid and vocalist Will McMillan breathe new life into Arlen’s beloved standards — including “Get Happy,” “It’s Only a Paper Moon,” “That Old Black Magic,” “Accentuate the Positive,” “Blues In The Night,” “Come Rain of Come Shine,” “If I Only Had A Brain,” “Let’s Fall In Love,” and, of course, “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.” 
The Zonis Auditorium has a great Steinway grand piano, and refreshments will be served by the temple. 100% of the proceeds from this performance will be given to a Syrian refugee organization.

George and Ira Gershwin were brothers whose playful, witty songs — brimming with rhythm and harmony —epitomized the jazz age. Born to Russian parents who emigrated to New York City to escape persecution under Czar Alexander III, Ira and George initially pursued parallel paths as lyricist and composer, officially teaming up in 1924 to co-create the musical comedy Lady Be Good. This was followed by a string of hit Broadway shows — with stars such as Ethel Merman, Fred and Adele Astaire, Ginger Rogers and Gertrude Lawrence — including Oh Kay!, Funny Face, Strike Up The Band, Girl Crazy, and Of Thee I Sing, which was the first musical to win the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. The Gershwins also spent time in Hollywood, writing songs for movies such as Delicious, A Damsel In Distress, and The Goldwyn Follies — and collaborated with novelist DuBose Heyward on a ground-breaking opera, Porgy and Bess. Along with stories about the brothers’ collaborative process, Will and Joe bring Gershwin standards to life including “S Wonderful,” “Fascinating Rhythm,” “They All Laughed,” “Love Is Sweeping The Country,” “They Can’t Take That Away From Me,” “He Loves and She Loves” “Nice Work If You Can Get It,” “I Got Rhythm,” “Someone To Watch Over Me,” “A Foggy Day,” and “Summertime.”

Howard Hoagland Carmichael was one of America's most beloved songwriters. He also found fame as a singer-pianist, movie actor and television personality, but never lost his early affinity for jazz. Growing up in a musical household in Bloomington, Indiana, Hoagy often tagged along with his mother when she played the piano in silent movie theaters. Although he earned a law degree, his heart was always in music — and as his songwriting success grew, he moved to NYC and then Hollywood, creating songs which were recorded by Louis Armstrong, Tommy Dorsey, Ethel Waters, Margaret Whiting, Benny Goodman, Mildred Bailey, Bing Crosby, Billie Holiday, and Frank Sinatra. Singer Will McMillan and pianist Joe Reid delight in performing Carmichael classics including "Heart and Soul," "The Nearness of You," "Two Sleepy People," "Georgia On My Mind," "Skylark," "In the Cool, Cool, Cool of the Evening," “I Get Along Without You Very Well," “Bread and Gravy,” “Small Fry,” "How Little We Know," and "Stardust."

Jerome David Kern left a legacy of over seven hundred songs — written for more than one hundred stage productions and Hollywood films. His best-known work,Show Boat, broke new ground in 1927 with its realistic characters, controversial subject matter, and dramatically integrated songs. Never before had issues of miscegenation, wife desertion, alcoholism, and gambling been the subject of a hit musical — one which continues to be revived to this day. Kern collaborated with many great lyricists — including Oscar Hammerstein II, Otto Harbach, P. G. Wodehouse, E.Y. (“Yip”) Harburg, Ira Gershwin, Johnny Mercer, Jimmy McHugh, and Dorothy Fields — and his songs won the Academy Award for Best Song in a Motion Picture twice. Singer Will McMillan and pianist Joe Reid find great pleasure in performing Kern classics including "Pick Yourself Up," "I Won’t Dance," "Smoke Gets In Your Eyes," "The Song Is You," "All The Things You Are," “The Folks Who Live On The Hill," "Make Believe," “Ol’ Man River,” “The Way You Look Tonight,” “Bill,” "I’m Old Fashioned," and “Can’t Help Lovin’ That Man."

THE SONGS OF STEVE SWEETING 
FRIDAY, OCTOBER 2, 2015 | 8:00 PM 
Steve Sweeting (playing piano) and Will McMillan (singing) 
Steve Sweeting is a New York-based jazz pianist, composer and songwriter who has recently published a series of eight songbooks. This concert celebrates the release of his newest CD — Blame Those Gershwins — which features nine songs written or co-written by Sweeting. Steve has lived all over the world, exploring different musical traditions. He was also a member of the BMI Musical Theatre Workshop in New York where he worked as a music director for many cabarets and musicals. Consequently, his songs contain a mix of musical styles — from ballad to swing, from funky to theatrical — and are tremendously fun to sing. Sweeting opened the Jazz Club Dizzy Gillespie in Dakar, Senegal, where he also studied djembe for four months. He has toured with a jazz band in Salvador, Brazil, where he studied in a samba group. And he has played a USIS tour in Asia and studied tabla in Bangladesh for six months. In 2006, Sweeting moved to Shanghai, where he lived for eight years. While in China, he founded a collaborative monthly series with Chinese jazz vocalists at an art gallery in Shanghai, exploring the intersection of Chinese musical traditions and jazz. He was a regular on the jazz scene in Shanghai and performed all over China including solo concerts in Guangzhou, Beijing, and Hangzhou.

George and Ira Gershwin were brothers whose playful, witty songs — brimming with rhythm and harmony —epitomized the jazz age. Born to Russian parents who emigrated to New York City to escape persecution under Czar Alexander III, Ira and George initially pursued parallel paths as lyricist and composer, officially teaming up in 1924 to co-create the musical comedy Lady Be Good. This was followed by a string of hit Broadway shows — with stars such as Ethel Merman, Fred and Adele Astaire, Ginger Rogers and Gertrude Lawrence — including Oh Kay!, Funny Face, Strike Up The Band, Girl Crazy, and Of Thee I Sing, which was the first musical to win the Pulitzer Prize for Drama. 
The Gershwins also spent time in Hollywood, writing songs for movies such as Delicious, A Damsel In Distress, and The Goldwyn Follies — and collaborated with novelist DuBose Heyward on a ground-breaking opera, Porgy and Bess. Along with stories about the brothers’ collaborative process, Will and Joe bring Gershwin standards to life including “S Wonderful,” “Fascinating Rhythm,” “They All Laughed,” “Love Is Sweeping The Country,” “They Can’t Take That Away From Me,” “He Loves and She Loves” “Nice Work If You Can Get It,” “I Got Rhythm,” “Someone To Watch Over Me,” “A Foggy Day,” and “Summertime.”

Jule Styne was born in London to Jewish immigrants from the Ukraine who ran a small grocery. When he was eight, his family moved to Chicago, where he performed as a pianist with the Chicago, St. Louis and Detroit Symphonies. By age thirteen he was playing in the pit orchestra of a burlesque house, and by age fifteen he had formed his own dance band. In 1934 he moved to New York City — working as an accompanist for Sophie Tucker — and then to Hollywood, where he found employment as a vocal coach for Shirley Temple, Mary Martin and Alice Faye. 
A man of enormous energy and personal magnetism, Styne would often work on three or four movie and theater projects simultaneously — partly because he was often in debt due to a lifelong gambling addiction. He co-wrote over 1500 songs with lyricists such as Frank Loesser, Sammy Cahn, Yip Harburg, Stephen Sondheim, Bob Merrill, Betty Comden, and Adolph Green. Along with stories about Styne’s extraordinary career, vocalist Will McMillan and pianist Joe Reid joyfully share his standards including "Neverland" (from Peter Pan); "People" (from Funny Girl); "Let Me Entertain You," "Everything's Coming Up Roses," and "Together Wherever We Go” (from Gypsy); "The Party's Over” and “Just In Time” (from Bells Are Ringing); "I've Heard That Song Before," "It's Been A Long, Long Time," "Guess I'll Hang My Tears Out To Dry," "Let It Snow!" "I Don’t Want to Walk Without You," and "Make Someone Happy."

The Academy Awards are not only a part of America’s history, they are also a mirror of the times. Beginning in 1934, a new category was added – Best Song From a Motion Picture – and for the next eight decades, Oscar winners and nominees for best song have reflected the pulse of America. The roster includes some of the most timeless love songs ever written, such as “Cheek to Cheek” and “The Days of Wine and Roses.” Some reflect a universal quest for happiness and contentment as in “Accentuate the Positive” and “You’ve Got A Friend In Me.” Others capture the yearning for a simpler, more innocent time: “In the Cool, Cool, Cool, of the Evening” and “When You Wish Upon A Star.” The list of best song winners and nominees includes most of the leading songwriters of the 20th century – Irving Berlin, Sammy Cahn, Cole Porter, Johnny Mercer, Henry Mancini, Harold Arlen, Hoagy Carmichael and Randy Newman, to name a few. Join Will McMillan and Bobbi Carrey for a history and appreciation of Academy Award nominees and winners during its first 80 years.

“What a voice. What a delivery. Will owns the stage even when he’s still as a whisper.” 
— Beverly Creasey, Theater Mirror 

Singer-songwriter Will McMillan has soloed with a cappella groups, pops orchestras, rock bands, and jazz combos. For many years he hosted Will & Company — a series highlighting local singers and songwriters — at the Blacksmith House in Harvard Square, earning a 2002 IRNE award from the Independent Reviewers of New England for Best Cabaret Show in a small venue. After taking a “Ukulele for the Almost Musical” class, Will began writing songs using GarageBand software and his trusty Apple laptop. On May 3rd he’ll perform a mix of standards and originals — including a healthy number of sing-alongs — accompanied by himself (ukulele) and by pre-recorded Doug Hammer (piano).

Harold Arlen earned his place in the history of American music by co-writing “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” for the 1939 movie The Wizard of Oz. Born the son of a cantor in Buffalo, NY, Arlen moved to New York City and wrote for Harlem's Cotton Club revues in the 20s — co-creating standards such as “Stormy Weather” and “I’ve Got The World On A String” for the Duke Ellington Orchestra and vocalist Ethel Waters. By the 30s, Harold Arlen had followed the migration of New York songwriters west to Hollywood where he was in demand writing for movie musicals. After the success of The Wizard of Oz, Arlen continued to write hit songs for 40 years. Pianist Joe Reid and vocalist Will McMillan breathe new life into Arlen’s beloved standards — including “Get Happy,” “It’s Only a Paper Moon,” “That Old Black Magic,” “Accentuate the Positive,” “Blues In The Night,” “Come Rain of Come Shine,” “If I Only Had A Brain,” “Let’s Fall In Love,” and, of course, “Somewhere Over the Rainbow.”

Songs by composers such as Jerome Kern and Dorothy Fields, Stephen Sondheim, Kander and Ebb, Jason Robert Brown and James Taylor reflect the role of business and its practices in society – ethical, unethical, greedy, inspiring, compromised and forward thinking…

THE ENVELOPE PLEASE 
SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 2009 | 8:00 PM 
The Academy Awards are not only a part of America’s history, they are also a mirror of the times. Beginning in 1934, a new category was added – Best Song From a Motion Picture – and for the next seven decades, Oscar winners and nominees for best song have reflected the pulse of America. The roster includes some of the most timeless love songs ever written, such as “Cheek to Cheek” and “The Days of Wine and Roses.” Some reflect a universal quest for happiness and contentment as in “Accentuate the Positive” and “You’ve Got A Friend In Me.” Others capture the yearning for a simpler, more innocent time: “In the Cool, Cool, Cool, of the Evening” and “When You Wish Upon A Star.” The list of best song winners and nominees includes most of the leading songwriters of the 20th century – Irving Berlin, Sammy Cahn, Cole Porter, Johnny Mercer, Henry Mancini, Harold Arlen, Hoagy Carmichael and Randy Newman, to name a few. Join Will McMillan and Bobbi Carrey for a history and appreciation of Academy Award nominees and winners during its first 75 years. Any history that includes both “Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah” and “The Tender Trap” is bound to be colorful.

IRVING BERLIN: THE VOICE OF EVERYMAN 
SATURDAY, JULY 12, 2008 | 7:00 PM 
Will McMillan and Bobbi Carrey with Doug Hammer on piano 
From “Alexander’s Ragtime Band” in 1911 to “Count Your Blessings” in 1954, Irving Berlin was the Voice of Everyman, putting into words and music what everyone felt to be true about their lives. He wrote tender love songs, waltzes, novelty songs, and show-stoppers — and by doing so managed to stay current and relevant long after others had fallen by the wayside. In appreciation of Berlin’s genius, this show offers songs by, and stories about, Irving Berlin.

Harvard Pops Concert 
Friday, April 18, 2003 at Paine Hall, Harvard University 
The Harvard Pops Orchestra presents their Spring Concert 
with guest pianist Wei Jen Yuan '06 and guest vocalist Will McMillan '84. 
The Harvard Pops has been providing Harvard with fun, witty, and improbable concerts since its inception in 1998. Under the direction of Arlington resident Allen Feinstein '86, the orchestra performs three major concerts each year. "Usually in the spring we just program music we like to play, but this year we discovered a Rhapsodic theme" says Feinstein. Highlights will include Gershwin's 'Rhapsody in Blue' along with his second Piano Concerto, "a rarely heard work nicknamed 'Rhapsody in Rivets' which started life as a film score," plus Queen's 'Bohemian Rhapsody,' which is being arranged and conducted by Harvard undergrad Hugh Daigle '04. Wei Jen Yuan '06 will be playing the challenging music at the heart of the Gershwin Concertos, and Michael Callahan '04 has arranged several songs for guest vocalist Will McMillan to perform with the orchestra, including Kern/Hammerstein's 'The Song is You' 
and James Hanley's "Zing! Went the Strings of My Heart." McMillan is delighted to be invited by Feinstein 
to sing with the Harvard Pops Orchestra. "My favorite undergraduate experience was singing with the 
Din & Tonics, which at that time was an upstart young a cappella group on campus" explains McMillan. 
3 Kirkland Street in Harv ard Square | 8:00 PM | $8 ($6 students)
