Be transported back in time to the 1940s with a live “radio” show of the distinctive American music of Fred Waring and the Pennsylvanians. Featuring popular hits of the era, a smattering of movie tunes, and a dash of great American classical music from the period. Delight in and laugh along with our warm and witty announcer, David Schroeder, as he leads us through skits and commercials reminiscent of this bygone era, along with clever ads for some local sponsors. Vince Fejeran’s big band will recreate the Pennsylvanians’ swinging sounds to enhance your listening enjoyment, as we bring to life original arrangements used by Waring’s singers and players. You will tap your toe and break out in song as you experience the music from “The Man Who Taught America to Sing”.
