learn about the memorable songs and wide range of music that accompanied and kept the home fires burning in WWII. World War II was the first conflict to take place in the age of people listening and dancing to music on radio, especially the music of all those BIG BANDS which had become so popular. They bought records and went to the movies!! World War II was a terrible time for the world, but a memorable time for songs and films. Join me as we take a look at (and listen to) a few of the WWII songs we still remember. We’ll revisit the energy of that era through its musical legacy. Instructor Janet Hochstatter’s interest in sheet music interest began years ago when she found the music in her mother’s piano bench was much more appealing than the piano lesson. Moving to Sun City West, she developed a new hobby of finding old sheet music and accompanying the WESTERNAIRES Chorus on the piano. After 13 years she became the choral director and held that position for ten years until she passed the baton in 2015
