Stage Door Canteen-Memories of World War II
During the years 1930 through the 1940s the composers such as Cole Porter, the Gershwin brothers, Sammy Cahn, and many others created some of the most lasting melodies of all time. The Big Bands brought it all to life and such voices as Bing Crosby, Rosemary Clooney, and the Andrew Sisters made it a part of this generation's soul. While World War II was taking a toll on the people of the United States, many performers in an effort to raise morale, carried their talents to the troops. Our "Stage Door Canteen" is a brief visit to that magical time of generosity and courage.
It's that time again to join the Juke Box singers as they stroll through the superb melodies of World War II. If you enjoyed the four performers from last year you will be twice as happy this year. Anne Sollien has gathered her fabulous friends and doubled the number! The singers to dazzle you this year will be: Back row left to right: Bob Sollien, Jonathan Adkins, Mike Shiles, Ray Wood. Front row: Kelly Fagan, Jamie Moor, Leah Winstanley, and Anne Sollien. We are thrilled to have Cynthia Hansen join us as our incredible accompanist.
This year there will be 3 Gershwin Medleys featuring the ensemble's smooth harmonies of love songs, swing songs, and selections from Porgy and Bess. Do the ballads "More Than You Know", "Begin the Beguine", and "Someone To Watch Over Me" bring back memories of an old flame? Does "Fascinatin' Rhythm" make your toe tap? Maybe "My Heart Belongs to Daddy", "Simple Life", and "Mairzy Doats" just makes you smile? We've even brought back the girls to reprise "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy". Whatever song makes your heart sing from "It Had To Be You" to "Don't Get Around Much Anymore" we are sure you will hear it in this tribute to the wonderful music of World War II.
Bring your sweetheart, bring your folks and join us as we salute the music our armed forces enjoyed while protecting our freedom in Europe and the Pacific.
