On Wednesday, May 28 at 7:00 p.m., the Westfield Memorial Library will host a program on the Star Spangled Songbook, presented by singer Dave DeLuca. The library is located at 550 East Broad Street.

The Star-Spangled Songbook is a musical celebration of the great American composers and lyricists who together crafted a body of work that is uniquely American, from Tin Pan Alley to Broadway, from jazz standards to the songs that won the war.

Every performance is a musical journey through the lives of the people we call the “Greatest Generation”--those Americans who grew up in the United States during the deprivation of the Great Depression, and then went on to fight in World War II, as well as those whose productivity within the war's home front made a decisive material contribution to the war effort.

New Jersey native Dave DeLuca is an accomplished singer, songwriter, disc jockey and musician who has been performing for over 30 years. In December 2011, Dave auditioned for and won a starring role in the Count Basie Theatre's Fifth Annual “Sinatra Birthday Bash.”

The program is free and open to Westfield Memorial Library and MURAL cardholders. MURAL cardholders belong to libraries that are part of the Middlesex Union Reciprocal Agreement Libraries.
