Holiday Program: Michael Lasser and Heartland Youth Choir

12/8/2016 / 6:30pm - 8:30pm

*Reservations required

Join music historian Michael Lasser and the Heartland Youth Choir for an entertaining evening of interesting historical facts and some of the best loved holiday songs of the season.

Michael Lasser is a lecturer, writer, broadcaster, critic, and teacher. Growing up “with Manhattan on his left and the Jersey Shore on his right,” Lasser saw his first Broadway musical at the age of 10. He is the author of America’s Songs II: Songs from the 1890s to the Post-War Years (2006), a companion to his and Philip Furia’s America’s Songs: The Stories Behind the Songs of Broadway, Hollywood, and Tin Pan Alley, and is currently finishing a third book, The City’s Clamor and the American Songbook, 1900-1950.

Heartland Youth Choir (HYC), founded by Barbara Sletto in 2003, is a performance-based program for youth, emphasizing musical literacy and character development. HYC provides a unique opportunity for children of diverse backgrounds with a particular aptitude in vocal music to explore that interest beyond their school setting. Dedicated to excellence, HYC develops musicianship and builds character of youth through the rehearsal and performance of quality choral literature. Children from grades 1 – 12 will be performing songs including Silver Bells, Santa Claus Is Coming To Town, I’ve Got My Love To Keep Me Warm, Baby It’s Cold Outside, and other holiday favorites.
