Byron Stripling, conductor, trumpet, & vocals
Sydney McSweeney, bass & vocals

The toe-tapping, finger-snapping program shines the spotlight on the music of great early 20th century composers, including George Gershwin (Fascinating Rhythm), Irving Berlin (Alexander’s Ragtime Band), and Isham Jones (It Had To Be You), that have the timeless melodies and rhythms that continue to lift our spirits today. Joined by world-renowned jazz vocalist Sydney McSweeney, Byron creates an inspiring musical portrait of how these songs shaped the Great American Songbook.
