Overview

Overview Love Songs of the Presidents

Back for another year of President’s Day sensationalism with oh-so-much-more material to put to song. The Dan Meyer Choir puts the love letters of US Presidents to original 4-part choral music. Written for their sweethearts from their youth, lovers and even their wives, these songs range from sweet to scandalous (Warren Harding waxes eloquent about his lover's breasts)! We'll deliver the romantic ramblings of George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Jefferson, John Tyler, James Buchanan, Abraham Lincoln, Herbert Hoover, and several other sizzling Presidents. You'll get to know these presidents like you never have before through the pop-styled settings of their passionate poetry.

Composer/arranger Dan Meyer leads his 18-voice choir in a musical tour of historical eccentricity and interest. Meyer has taught music on the islands of Guam and Oahu, resurrected pop songs about Baltimore written after 1850, and sings period songs about the Battle of Baltimore.
