This show is a celebration of our “American Musical Heritage”.  It begins slowly with the old spiritual “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot” which segues abruptly into a Dixieland jazz section on “When the Saints Go Marchin’ In”. Next we hear a “Big Band Swing” section in the spirit of Benny Goodman and Gene Krupa that will have everyone doing the jitterbug! Then we hear a change of pace with some “Low Down Blues”.  Finally, we move into the age of rock and roll, first with a “50’s Doo-Wop Rock” section and then a transition into “21st Century Rock” that includes an optional synthesizer part that rocks to a big finale!  Your audience and students will love this American musical journey.
