    “Songs of WWI” with Doug Schmolze

    Wed. May 17 12:30pm-1:30pm

    In this centennial retrospective, Doug Schmolze, singer and guitarist, presents a variety of songs from the 19tens, both patriotic and otherwise. With anecdotes and historical notes the program provides insight into the mood of the era that ushered in the “War to End all Wars”. Audiences will recognize (and sing along to) patriotic songs such as “Over There” and “You’re a Grand Old Flag” by George M. Cohan that remain popular, especially on civic occasions. But composers of the era also produced Ragtime, waltzes and romantic songs such as “The Land Where the Good Songs Go” by Jerome Kern and, on the lighter side, “When I Had a Uniform On” by Cole Porter. Visuals and lyrics to sing-a-longs are provided by an accompanying power-point presentation. Please sign up for this program by calling 508-799-1232.
