Can you believe it’s almost April! Time has flown this month. I’ve been working with a great coach on a demo to sell/market the singing travelogue, and I thought I’d share this track with you today!
Today’s song sung by me is: “Ah, Sweet Mystery of Life”.
This song comes from the operetta “Naughty Marietta” by Victor Herbert which first premiered in 1910. The Utah Historical Archive told me this song appeared on a January 23,
1930 music program for the Chamber of Commerce in Salt Lake City. Seeing the 20 year gap from the premiere to the performance in Utah, you can see the song had wonderful staying power.
For those of us who weren’t alive during at this point in history, I’ve heard various comments from people like: “it sounds like music from a Bugs Bunny cartoon” or “I’ve heard this music before, but didn’t know there were actually words to it!” Overall, those who have heard me sing this piece really like it, and for me it definitely speaks to the sentiments of the time.
Let me know what you think!
