In conjunction with the Norfolk Historical Society’s exhibition Norfolk in the Great War, singer and guitarist Doug Schmolze will present a centennial retrospective of songs from the 19teens, both patriotic and otherwise. With anecdotes and historical notes, the program provides insight into the mood of the era that ushered in the “War to End all Wars”. Sing along to such patriotic songs as “Over There” and “You’re a Grand Old Flag” by George M. Cohan. Composers of the era also produced Ragtime, waltzes, and romantic songs such as “The Land Where the Good Songs Go” by Jerome Kern and, on the lighter side, “When I Had a Uniform On” by Cole Porter. This program is suitable for all ages.
