If you're not too busy watching your favorite baseball team here on Opening Day 2014, you might check out pianist and composer Shelton "Shelly" Berg, Dean of the University of Miami Frost School of Music as he gives a talk and performance on the history and legacy of the Great American Songbook. Berg will show us how a small group of mostly immigrant musicians born around the turn of the 20th century created art is small packages -- the remarkable form of the popular song. The talk is tonight (3/30), and admission is FREE to everyone. The event starts at 7:00 pm in WDNA's Jazz Gallery at 2921 Coral Way.
