Dive into the Great American Songbook this winter with What Makes It Great? host Rob Kapilow, the NPR & PBS music commentator, conductor, composer, author and pianist. He is also the current composer-in-residence at the Thurnauer School of Music. The new series combines performances filmed in Kaufman Music Center’s Merkin Hall exploring the music of Cole Porter and Stephen Sondheim with online classes filmed at the Eric Brown Theater in the JCC focused on five giants of the Great American Songbook: George Gershwin, Irving Berlin, Harold Arlen, Richard Rodgers and Leonard Bernstein. Created and taught by Kapilow, the performances feature Broadway stars Nikki Renée Daniels, Sally Wilfert and Michael Winther.
Presented by Kaufman Music Center in collaboration with the JCC Thurnauer School of Music, the course draws on Kapilow’s critically acclaimed 2019 book Listening for America: Inside the Great American Songbook from Gershwin to Sondheim. Each class ends with a live Q&A with Kapilow.
