In Commemoration of the 70th Anniversary of the End of World War II

While You’re Away: Love Songs of World War II

“Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree (With Anyone Else But Me),” “You’ll Never Know,” “I’ll Walk Alone,” “A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square,” “Yours,” “Chatanooga Choo Choo,” “Bei Mir Bistu Shein,” “The Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy,” “Besame Mucho,” “I’ll Be Seeing You”— these are just some of the many incomparable love songs exceptionally popular during World War II. Why were they so popular? Who wrote, played, and sang them? Who danced and “romanced” to them? What made them unforgettable both on the fighting and home front? This one woman concert/lecture delves into it all and in the process reveals how the “Spirit” of the time was uplifted by these songs . . . to hope for a time of peace and an end to a terrible and frightening war.
