Description

The so-called “Great American Songbook” was crafted by a small cadre of songwriters, most of whom were male. But there are some very significant women architects of this body of song who are still under-recognized to this very day. Chief among them are composer/lyricist Ann Ronell and the prolific wordsmith Dorothy Fields. This presentation will explore their lives and music, as well an aural feast of some of their timeless work.
