MAKING A LIST: THE SECULAR SONGS OF CHRISTMAS

 

Wed, Dec 7  1:30 pm     Tickets: $15

Most of our holiday standards were written between 1942 and 1952, in a burst of activity inspired by the enormous success of Irving Berlin's "White Christmas," and came into existence in various and surprising ways. Taken together, the stories behind these immortal songs paint a fascinating cultural picture of America itself during the era of and after World War Two.
