Great American Songbook

David Carlson PIANIST DAVID SGGCARLSON AND VOCALIST SUSIE GODSEY perform a concert of great American popular songs on Sunday, April 10, 3pm at St. Catherine of Alexandria Episcopal Church, 36335 Highway 101 North in Nehalem.

Carlson and Godsey have worked together for seven years as members of Vox Eclectique, the North Coast’s premier vocal octet. This concert is a result of their mutual love of this musical genre and their evident joy of performing together.

The phrase, The Great American Songbook, has entered the lexicon of popular culture. When you hear it, you know immediately that it represents the work of the very best of our American composers and lyricists.

“I love to play the music of our legendary Broadway and Hollywood musicals,” said David. “I’ve found that audiences everywhere respond to these songs.”

It’s from this wealth of Tin Pan Alley, Broadway and Hollywood compositions that David and Susie have picked some of their favorites – some swinging, some sentimental and some presented as piano solos.

An informal gathering yet exuberant celebration of the golden age of American popular song. A $10 donation is suggested. FMI: Susie Godsey 503.368.5200. Email: godsey@nehalemtel.net.
