American Jukebox

Irving Berlin, composer of Annie Get Your Gun, wrote an estimated 1,500 songs, many of which have become part of our popular culture: “God, Bless America,” “There’s No Business Like Show Business,” “White Christmas” — the list goes on.

Earlier this week, the Library of Congress launched American Jukebox, a new website of over 10,000 rare historic sound recordings available to the public for the first time publicly. Want to hear some rare Irving Berlin songs? Search under “Berlin, Irving” (no quotation marks) and you’ll be amply rewarded.

If you prefer your Berlin rarities live, join us this summer for The Unsung Songbook, a program of less-known works from Berlin and his contemporaries, performed by members of our Young Artists Program. Performances are July 18 and August 2; tickets are just $10 adults/$5 children.
