Somewhere Over the Rainbow: The Music of Harold Arlen

Somewhere Over the Rainbow: The Music of Harold Arlen

This concert will feature beloved songs from the American Songbook such as "Over the Rainbow," "Stormy Weather," and "It's Only a Paper Moon." Though his name may be obscure, Harold Arlen's compositions have been celebrated by experts and public alike. A son of a cantor, Arlen left home at 16 and faced many private misfortunes. However, tragic circumstances could not muffle his songs: "Blues in the Night," "My Shining Hour," "Come Rain or Come Shine," and "The Man That Got Away."
