The subject of dreams and dreaming has been an essential ingredient in the history of music dating back centuries. Two excellent examples are Franz Lizst’s “Liebestraum” (Love Dream) and Robert Schumann’s "Traumerei" (Dreaming), both written for solo piano and an essential part of the Romantic Era repertoire. Around this time, America’s greatest 19th century songwriter Stephen Foster continued this tradition with melodies such as "Beautiful Dreamer" and "(I Dream of) Jeannie with the Light Brown Hair."
This program will, in addition to the aforementioned numbers, focus on a variety of more modern works with the same theme. We will have an opportunity to watch and listen to performances of such wonderful songs as "You Stepped Out of a Dream," "I Dreamed a Dream," "All I Have to do is Dream," "Daydream Believer," and "Out of My Dreams." Artists such as Nat King Cole, Doris Day, Florence Henderson, and Laura Osnes will put their vocal talents to superb use as we relive these and many other "Dream" songs.
