Join us for an evening of relaxation and reminiscing as Royal Oak’s Stu Johnson returns with Irving Berlin: Dean of American Songwriters.
Coming to America in 1893 at the age of five, Irving Berlin was in his teens singing parodies of songs of the day to earn a few extra pennies while selling papers on the street corners of New York. This ability to “write” lyrics soon made him fairly well known, leading quickly to jobs as a singing waiter, a song plugger, and the creator of some of America's greatest songs, and perhaps, the best composer of them all.
