Afterward, NJPAC President and CEO John Schreiber – a passionate aficionado of the genre — will join our featured guest in conversation, examining the history of this timeless music and tales of the legendary composers, lyricists and artists who brought it to life.

The American Song series at NJPAC is presented, in part, through the generous support of the Blanche and Irving Laurie Foundation
