The Great American Songbook Project


The Waterbury Symphony Orchestra is very excited to present the American Songbook Project, which will take place on June 9-11, 2017 at Taft School's Woodward Chapel, 25 the Green in Watertown, CT. During this intensive weekend long workshop, a half dozen talented young singers will be coached in great songs from the 1920's, 30's, 40's, and 50's which are known collectively as "The Great American Songbook." This workshop will be led by Natalie Douglas and Alex Rybeck (see biographies below,) and will culminate with a concert on Sunday, June 11 at 5:30, at Woodward Chapel, in a Cabaret showcase featuring teachers and students in performance of the songs learned during the weekend. This exciting event is made possible through the generosity of Norman S. Drubner, who will serve as master of ceremonies for the final showcase.
