Our 75th anniversary celebrations continue with a special edition of Singers Showcase, featuring some of Berklee’s most outstanding vocalists, instrumentalists, dancers, arrangers, track producers, and engineers. To curate the concert and commemorate over seven decades of extraordinary music-making, members of the Berklee community were invited to submit their favorite songs from 1945 to 2021. The resulting repertoire traces many musical eras, genres, and artists. Join us for a retrospective and present-day glimpse into the deep and diverse well of popular music that has graced our stages, filled our practice rooms, and topped our digital playlists. Produced by Maureen McMullan ’09, the performance features a full rhythm section, horns, strings, background vocalists, and dancers. Presented in the style of a TV music special, the show opens with an instrumental version of “Sentimental Journey,” the biggest hit from 1945, the year that Lawrence Berk founded Schillinger House (now Berklee), the first college-level school in the United States where jazz was the basis of the curriculum. Enjoy music that will transport you through the decades while commentary from student host Nia Ashleigh Harris—as well as rare photos and ephemera from the Berklee Archives—highlight key elements of the College’s storied 75-year history.
