Bach's Lunch Concert: Songs from the Home Front with the Mairzy Doats Duo
Thursday, November 09, 2017, 12:10pm - 12:50pm

Songs from the Home Front: The Mairzy Doats Duo

Mairzy Doats credit Jim Kenyon Valley News web sizeThursday, November 9, 12:10-12:50 p.m.

For the Nov. 9 Bach's Lunch Concert, mezzo-soprano Ellen Nordstrom and pianist Abigail Charbeneau perform as the Mairzy Doats Duo, singing and playing morale-boosting songs that were popular among troops and the American public during the two World Wars. Nordstrom and Charbeneau, both faculty members at Concord Community Music School, will cover everything from George M. Cohan’s patriotic pop-hit from 1917, “Over There,” to Rodgers & Hammerstein’s sunshiny “Cock-eyed Optimist,” immortalized in the 1958 film South Pacific.


Much more than Bach, the series explores a range of musical topics and genres in informal, free, lunch-hour lectures and concerts the first and second Thursdays of each month, November through June.

Bach's Lunch lectures and concerts are held in the Recital Hall, 23 Wall Street, downtown Concord; they begin at 12:10 and conclude by 12:50 p.m. Bring your lunch - and your friends!

The Bach’s Lunch Series is sponsored by The Timothy and Abigail B. Walker Lecture Fund and The Couch Trusts; TD Wealth Management, NA; Trustee. For more information, call 603-228-1196 or visit www.ccmusicschool.org.
