Harry WarrenBethlehem, Pa., January 10, 2013—Moravian College will celebrate the timeless songs of composer Harry Warren (1893-1981) on Friday, January 25 in Foy Concert Hall on Moravian’s Hurd Campus. An all-star quintet including Pete Smyser, 7-string guitarist, will be joined by Larry McKenna, saxophone, Tom Lawton, piano, Madison Rast, bass, and Dan Monaghan, drums, will present, Jeepers Creepers! it will be An Affair to Remember – A musical tribute to Harry Warren.

While most are not familiar with his name, Harry Warren had more songs on the hit parade than Irving Berlin, Jerome Kern, Cole Porter, George Gershwin, or any of the great American Songbook composers. In fact, at one point Warren had 24 consecutive top ten hits and even wrote the song that became the very first gold record in history. This concert will be recorded for future CD release. Smyser’s previous concert at Moravian (The Jerome Kern Concert) was released on CD in 2012 and rose to the top 50- in jazz radio play nationally for several weeks.
