Remembering (or just visiting) the decade that gave us frozen food, the Trans-Siberian Railway, Mickey Mouse, Amy Johnson and, of course, the chocolate chip cookie, we were not about to get depressed.
With so much wonderful music in the 1930s, it would be foolish not to make the most of it and celebrate some of the best song writers the world has ever known.
Last night there was a whole programme of free musical entertainment to cheer us up on what was a very wet and windy evening; courtesy of Cole Porter, Jerome Kern, Richard Rodgers, Hoagy Carmichael, the staff of Westminster Music Library, plus our very own backing singers, better known as our lovely customers.
There were renditions of some of the most romantic music ever written – All the things you are, The nearness of you, In the still of the night – all we needed was Fred and Ginger to complete the scene.
And there’s a whole lot more entertainment on offer at Westminster Music Library, absolutely free. Anyone can join us, so come along for the chance to sing and listen to some best loved music. Let us entertain you – in the words of Mae West that famous 1930s star of the silver screen:
“Too much of a good thing can be wonderful”
Here’s what they’re saying about us:
‘Thank you so much for organising these concerts at the library, I really look forward to them.’
‘Thank you, it was a very enjoyable evening.’
‘I love the old songs, many thanks for a wonderful evening.’
