“Ac-Cent-Tchu-Ate the Positive”
The Jazzy Songs of Harold Arlen

A One Woman Show with Carol Duermit
created and directed by Francis Cullinan

October 15-17, 2021

Join AmiciMusic for this toe-tapping retrospective of the incredible songs of Harold Arlen.  Born Hyman Arluck, the son of a cantor in Buffalo, NY, Arlen became one of the greatest songwriters of all time, composing over 400 memorable tunes, including “Stormy Weather,” “Get Happy,” “Come Rain or Come Shine,” “Let’s Fall in Love,” and “Over the Rainbow.”   George Gershwin described him as “the most original of all of us” and, at his funeral, the great Irving Berlin said: “He wasn’t as well known as some of us, but he was a better songwriter than most of us and he will be missed by all of us.”  He helped bridge the divide between the jazzy world of the Cotton Club and Harlem and Broadway, eventually making his way out to Hollywood, where he wrote the memorable music for “The Wizard of Oz.”  Francis Cullinan has created and directed another wonderful one woman show featuring singer Carol Duermit and pianist/Artistic Director Daniel Weiser, who will weave his fantastic life story through words and song.  Hope you can take this thrilling and nostalgic journey back in time!
