Let's Go On With The Show

Step into the Divaville Lounge on May 11 from 2-4 pm, as we celebrate the 120th birthday of Irving Berlin. One of the first major stars of Tin Pan Alley, called "The Dean of American Songwriters," Berlin had an immeasurable impact on American popular music.

Irving Berlin was nearly unable to read sheet music yet published over 3,000 songs, and he was an immigrant from Eastern Europe who wrote "God Bless America," often called our alternate national anthem. We'll learn more about Irving Berlin's inspiring life and career, and hear a sampling of his vast body of work sung by Divaville Lounge favorites. It will be nothing but blue skies from now on!
