This course is timed to cover the departure of most waterfowl and the arrival of migratory songbirds and our local summer residents. Got warblers? Got shorebirds? Got flycatchers and finches? Learn how to see some gorgeous species up close while at the same time experiencing the joy of spring birdsong. Field trips will put into practice what we discuss in class.

ALL Course: Celebrating the Golden Age of Popular Song

March 22 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

The songs of the “Golden Age,” also known as the “American Songbook,” come mostly from the theater and movies of the 20’s through the 60’s. Some of the shows may be long forgotten, but not their songs. The composers and lyricists were masters of melody, rhythm, and language. Their songs provided moods of romance, solace, humor, and wisdom which follow us into this 21st century. In this session, Judy will focus on the lesser-known composers and lyricists whose songs are still remembered. She is passionate about these enduring gems and would love to share them with you and reflect on their timeless appeal.
