VIRTUAL Senior Happening: Lecture-in-Song “Words & Music”
Mar 19
Livingston Public Library

Friday, March 19 from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm

Livingston Public Library

This Senior Happening will be hosted online! Visit https://www.crowdcast.io/e/fred-millers-lecture-in-9 to register with your name and email address before March 19th. To do this, click "Save My Spot". On March 19th, ten minutes before the live program begins you will receive an email reminder with a link. You will need to enter your same name and email address to gain entry. The phrase "Words & Music" describes the two essential elements of song, and the most frequently asked question regarding song is "Which comes first?" The question acknowledges the equal importance of both lyricist and composer in the creation of a great song, and the answer varies with every collaboration. This Lecture-in-Song appropriately entitled "Words and Music" deals with one great lyricist (Sammy Cahn) and one great composer (Jimmy McHugh), and the answer to The Question about which came first is "Neither" since these two never worked together. They did work separately in the same era with a host of worthy collaborators, and both merit a close look. Both were prolific, and both were consistently good, often great.Registration is required for Senior Happening. Senior Happening is made possible in part by funds from the Essex County Division of Cultural Affairs, a partner of the New Jersey State Council on the Arts and through the support from the Friends of the Livingston Library.
