FRED MILLER AND THE MUSIC OF FRANK LOESSER
Pianist and raconteur Fred Miller will perform his popular ”Lectures-In-Song” program on the music of Frank Loesser on Sunday, December 7, 2014 at 2:00 pm at the Clarence Dillon Public Library. Fred Miller plays and sings beloved standards from the Frank Loesser songbook with his accompanying trademark blend of insight, anecdotes, and banter. Frank Loesser was a versatile American composer of musical theatre and popular music. Besides composing the scores for the musicals “Guys and Dolls,” “The Most Happy Fella,” and “How to Succeed in Business without Really Trying,” he is well-known for countless classics like “Heart and Soul,” “Baby, It’s Cold Outside,” and “I Believe in You.”
Fred Miller is well-known for his “Lecture-In-Song” series on the American Popular Song. He studied classical piano for many years, but upon hearing Ella Fitzgerald sing Cole Porter, he found his calling and life’s mission. He studied acting for two years with stage and film legend Geraldine Page and vocal performance with Tony award winner Helen Gallagher. He has appeared in television commercials and on the radio and has run the Copper Penny Players for many years.
