Requesting the Pleasure of Your Company….Music from the Manor
An evening of popular music from the first half of the 20th century by English and American composers, including songs by Noel Coward, Ivor Novello, Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern and other Tin Pan Alley songwriters. Pianists McGuire and Harris will contribute a delightful set of four-hand piano duets, while singers Jarman, Retzlaff and Shay will share their favorites among the gems of this charming era. For this informal, cabaret-style evening, the audience will be seated at tables on the stage in Ingram Hall, and tea, coffee and dessert will be available.
Presented with gratitude to the Landis Gullett Charitable Lead Trust for its generous support of the Blair School.
