Songs of World War I
Berkshire guitarist and singer Doug Schmolze will give us the musical side of World War I with a performance of songs from the 1910s, both patriotic and otherwise. With anecdotes and historical notes the program will provide insight into the mood of the era. His audience, all ages are invited, will recognize (and sing along to) patriotic songs such as “Over There” and “You’re a Grand Old Flag” that still remain popular. Composers also created Ragtime, waltzes and romantic songs, such as “The Land Where the Good Songs Go” by Jerome Kern and “When I Had a Uniform On” by Cole Porter.
