While You’re Away: Love Songs of World War II

“Don’t Sit Under the Apple Tree (With Anyone Else But Me),” “You’ll Never Know,” “I’ll Walk Alone,” “A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square,” “Chattanooga Choo Choo,” “The Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy,” and “I’ll Be Seeing You” are just some of the many incomparable love songs that were exceptionally popular during World War II. Why were they so popular? Who wrote, played, and sang them? Who danced and romanced to them? What made them unforgettable both on the fighting and home front?

This one woman concert/lecture with performer and professor Dr. Diane Cypkin delves into it all and discusses how the spirit of the time was uplifted by these songs. Join us on Sunday, March 20 at 2 p.m. in the Memorial Room at the Main Library, 1080 Old Post Road. Registration is requested due to limited seating.

Dr. Diane Cypkin is an award-winning professor of Media, Communication, and Visual Arts at Pace University where she has taught for more than twenty-five years. She is a singer and performer known for her one-woman Yiddish/English presentation on Milly Picon and has been a featured performer in concerts at Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall. The multi-talented Cypkin is also an actress and director.
