As one of the most popular songwriters of the 21st century, Taylor Swift is undoubtedly a proper subject for an American Popular Song Society program, if we consider the organization’s name literally. The Hal Leonard Corporation informs us that Taylor Swift songbooks and digital sheet music are among their top sellers, so Ms. Swift fits in well under our group’s former name, the New York Sheet Music Society. But are her songs the right kind of popular? Can they hold up alongside the 20th century entries in the Great American Songbook? Are they worthy of being performed in a small club, with acoustic accompaniment, by cabaret singers? Tom Toce and Michael Lavine believe the answer is yes and look forward to offering performances by Kira Berman, Serena Feniger, Meg Flather, Hannah Jane, David LaMarr, Ava-Riley Miles, Megan Styrna, and others to prove so. This program will delight Taylor Swift fans (aka Swifties) and at the same time provide a solid introduction to her catalogue of wonderful songs to those who don’t know her work.

We meet the second Saturday of each month

343 W. 46th St., NYC
