Thirty-five years after her death, Barack Obama, in his inauguration speech as 44th President of the United States on January 20, 2009, echoed lyrics by Fields when he said, "Starting today, we must pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and begin again the work of remaking America".[2] This alludes to the song "Pick Yourself Up" from the 1936 film Swing Time, for which Jerome Kern had written the music, in which Ginger Rogersand Fred Astaire sang Fields's words "Pick yourself up; dust yourself off; start all over again"

    I just joined this group today. I'm pleased I did. Good event, nice people. I strongly recommend attending "singers showcase" in April. They have it twice/yr, in the fall and the spring. I've gone about 10 times and it's always been spectacular. April 17.

    Update on cost: the tickets are $8 if you buy online now, plus a $2 service fee plus either 1) 1.50 to print them at home or 2) $3 to pick them up at will call. That makes the cost either 11.50 or 13 per ticket, depending on delivery. Orchestra 1 is almost full.

    February 16, 2014

    • Suzanne S

      The cost if we get the group discount is $10.30. Without it's $4 more. With a group, we can sit together. Alone, you might get a seat up front.

      I sent you an email from PopMoney this week, Suzanne. Did you receive it?

      February 21, 2014

  • Catherine

    Was wondering- do we purchase our own tickets or purchase from group leader? I just want to make sure I am understanding correctly. Thanks

    February 21, 2014

    • Suzanne S

      I have 5 tickets left. Please email me and paypal me to get one of these tickets.

  • Caryn W.

    Hi Suzanne ! Do you have a suggestion on where to park ?

    February 21, 2014

    • Suzanne S

      There's ticketed on street parking and the prudential mall which is not far away.

    Hi guys, I'm sorry I won't be able to come on Sunday due to an urgent afternoon rehearsal for a community event that I'm taking part in next weekend. I was looking forward to the the songwriters evening. Have fun!

    I hope to actually be able to make this event. With 16 people attending, is it possible to call in the order or get a group code from the organization? I've done that with hotels and tickets on trips (primarily to NYC).

    Hi Suzanne,
    I am really looking forward to this event. I just tried to purchase a ticket using the link provided but it ask if you want to be in Orchestra Section 1 or 2. They are both $12 so imagine they will cost $8 w/our group discount. Just wanted to know which section I should choose at it would be nice to sit together as a group.

  • Jimsicle

    Good question, Diane. It's reserved seating, and when I just checked at the ticketing website, there is a 10 ticket limit per purchase. (It does appear to be pretty wide open at the moment, though.) I'm sure you wouldn't want to be on the hook for this, Suzanne!

    February 15, 2014

    • Suzanne S

      Yes, Jim. It would depend on getting 10 people. I'll add that to the description.

      February 16, 2014

  • diane

    I'd love to go! This sounds like a lot of fun. I'm kind of new to this group.How do I pre-pay the $8.00?
