Irving Berlin: An American Institution Presented by Martin Schneit

Date/Time

Jun 27, 2019

Description

Jerome Kern concluded that Irving Berlin has no place in American music. He IS American music.  During Irving Berlin’s career he published an estimated 1,500 songs. Martin Schneit will discuss how the immigrant from Russia became the classic ragtime to riches story.

 

Join Martin Schneit at the Larchmont Public Library on Thursday, June 27 at 7:00pm as he presents the story of one of the greatest songwriters of popular songs, songs like Alexander’s Ragtime Band, God Bless America, White Christmas, Won't You Play a Simple Melody, A Pretty Girl is Like a Melody, You'd Be Surprised, Puttin on The Ritz, and There is No Business Like Show Business.

 

Martin Schneit is a native New Yorker. In addition to being a life-long New York history buff, he has been a licensed New York City Tour Guide for over ten years.  For the past ten years, Schneit has been volunteering his services, conducting walking tours of the City for Open House New York, a non-profit organization that promotes a greater appreciation of the city’s built environment; broadens public awareness by exposing diverse audiences to distinctive examples of architecture, engineering and design; educates and inspires discussion of issues of excellence in design, planning and preservation; and showcases outstanding new work as well as structures of historic merit.
