Pianist and raconteur Fred Miller will perform his popular “Lectures-In-Song” program on the song lyrics of Alan Jay Lerner at the Clarence Dillon Public Library on Sunday, February 21, 2016 at 2:00 pm. Alan Jay Lerner was an American lyricist and librettist who created some of the world’s most popular and enduring works of musical theatre for both the stage and the screen.  Brigadoon, My Fair Lady, and Camelot were some of his hits for the stage as well as the films Royal Wedding and Gigi.

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.

The program will take place in the downstairs meeting rooms of the library.  Admission is $5.00 which is payable at the door.  Registration is recommended but not required.  Please register by calling the library at 908-234-2325 or by email or in person at the circulation desk.
