Over the Rainbow, Way Up High

Harold ArlenStep into the Divaville Lounge on Sunday, February 22 from 2-4 pm as we celebrate composer Harold Arlen! A beloved contributor to the Great American Songbook, Arlen wrote hundreds of songs with lyricists including Ted Koehler, Yip Harberg and Johnny Mercer. His most famous composition, "Somewhere Over the Rainbow," was voted the greatest song of the 20th century by the RIAA. We'll learn about Arlen's life and hear classic songs like "Blues in the Night," "Stormy Weather" and "Paper Moon." Tune in and while away the hours, conferring with the flowers, consulting with the rain!
