'20s '30s or '40s songs for soprano?
I'm considering participating in my school's annual "Throwback Concert," in which students sing popular songs from the '20s, '30s and '40s.
I am a soprano/mezzo-soprano.
A lot of the more popular songs have already been claimed, and I don't know anything about music from this era, so all suggestions are appreciated!
