This unique class explores the much-beloved world of the Great American Songbook. Based on his new, award-winning book, Listening For America: Inside the Great American Songbook from Gershwin to Sondheim, each of the course's 7 classes focuses on one of the giants of the Great American Songbook including George Gershwin, Jerome Kern, Irving Berlin, Cole Porter, Richard Rodgers, Leonard Bernstein, and Stephen Sondheim. Through a close look at several of each composer's most famous songs combined with a wide-angled historical point of view, the course tells the story of America through some of its greatest songs.  The course is designed for everyone and anyone, whether you are a musical-theatre devotee, first-time listener, singer, music student, or simply a lover of the music of Broadway's Golden Age.  From "I've Got Rhythm" to "Send in the Clowns," you will leave the course listening to America and some of its greatest music with a whole new pair of ears.
