REGISTRATION IS CLOSED. Join us in celebrating the life of Cole Porter. We hear live performances of the songs he contributed to the American Songbook, composing glorious music and sophisticated lyrics that evoke the times in which he lived. Not only did he make a name for himself on Broadway, but his numerous hit songs, like the standards Night and Day and Begin the Beguine buoyed the nation’s spirits during the Depression. Dr. Joe tells us captivating stories and reviews Cole Porter’s impressive lyrics and plays this iconic music for us on a piano keyboard in his own creative style.
