Music Through the Decades

--Adult Events General

Thursday, September 23 at 6:30 pm

The Norman Rockwell Museum commissioned David Polansky to develop “Music Through The Decades,” a fun filled hour in which the audience learns how the last hundred-plus years of American and world history have inspired so many of the songs we love.

Using keyboard, trumpet, and vocals, David presents the music of George M. Cohan, Fats Waller, Irving Berlin, Hoagy Carmichael, and a host of others – music inspired by the advent of the automobile, the two world wars, the Roaring 20s, the Great Depression, the wild west, and much more.

David engages the audience, taking questions, performing requests, and telling very funny anecdotes about famous musicians as well as some about his own life as a musician.

A career musician, David has played with Sandler and Young, Phyllis Diller, Henny Youngman, Ray Bolger, Arthur Fiedler, The Platters, The Coasters….The list goes on and on.

This program is made possible through CARES Act funding to Federal Institute of Museum and Library Services as administered by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners.

This is a hybrid program. It will take place in the auditorium, with a Zoom stream available to offsite attendees. Please select to indicate whether you will be attending in person or virtually when registering.

To protect patrons and staff, we will require masks for all indoor programs. Masks are required for all patrons aged 2 or older, regardless of vaccination status.
