Fred Miller’s series of Lectures-In-Song covers virtually every major songwriter from the Golden era of popular music between the World Wars. Broadway-Hollywood giants Jerome Kern, George Gershwin, Richard Rodgers, Harold Arlen, Cole Porter and Irving Berlin are among the most celebrated names of twentieth century American culture >>

The Copper Penny Players come from all walks of life. They range in age from 18 to 80 and may travel from as far away as Princeton and Philadelphia to be together. What they all have in common is a desire to sing and have a good time, regardless of musical experience. The Copper Penny Players have been led by Fred Miller since 1981 >>

"Miller is something of a one man show himself, producing, directing, leading the musical ensemble and co-designing the sets. Often doing everything means that some things are not professionally accomplished, but Miller is evidently able to do it all" >>
