Live from The Conservatory: The Great American Songbook
Updated: Oct 6, 2020
Come join us for a celebration of America’s greatest era of songwriting: 1920–1959! When the popular songs of the day were crafted by Doylestown’s own Oscar Hammerstein and his writing partner, Richard Rodgers, and by many other great American songwriters.
On Sunday, October 11th, at 3:00 PM, several members of The Conservatory Faculty will perform, joined by select Conservatory students, including the school’s Advanced Jazz Ensemble. They will take you back in time, to when American songwriters took the world by storm.
The Venue: Your own couch! This "Live from The Conservatory" concert will be Live-streamed from the Recital Hall in our building, through YouTube, to your home! This concert is free for anyone with the link, though donations are appreciated.

A Note from our Performance Program & Concert Manager, Bill Gottshall: "The term 'Great American Songbook' is used when referring to the songs of this era because these tunes continue to be performed, reinterpreted, and recorded to this day. They form the backbone of the song collection called Jazz Standards and what many musicians around the world consider to be America’s greatest contribution to the arts."
