Accentuate the Positive

It was in 1944 that Bing Crosby made the Johnny Mercer tune, Accentuate The Positive, a hit in film and on radio. It later became known as one of the songs that got Americans through World War Two. The popular songs of the day, most often written for Broadway, became an unofficial catalogue of music that comforted and connected Americans at home and abroad during hard times—it's the music that grew up with the Greatest Generation!

2023 line-up includes: Keith Balla, Joshua Banbury, Carmen Bradford, Olivia Chindamo, Adrian Cunningham, Champian Fulton, Pasquale Grasso, Niki Haris, Konrad Paszkudzki, Ari Roland, and Dylan Shamat
