AMERICAN SONG BOOK by HAL GLATZER

Hal likes to say, “I was born and raised on a small island. Like many musicians there, I first got work in the classical repertoire that had come from Europe.

About the event

Hal explains: “I come from Manhattan. I grew up taking violin and clarinet lessons; and as a soprano, age 12-13, I sang in the Boys’ Chorus of the Metropolitan Opera Company. In my teens and twenties, I played 5-string banjo and sang in bluegrass bands. But for the past forty years, I have been playing vintage archtop guitars, and singing the early jazz and Swing-era “standards:” the repertoire of the “Great American Songbook,” created in the Manhattan realms of Tin Pan Alley and Broadway, much of which I first heard my mother sing at the piano.”
