Timeless Melodies Foundation for Education, Inc. Fred Astaire: Part 2 (Music 450B) The Timeless Melodies Foundation for Education, Inc. has been created to develop, promote, and advance the study and understanding of the role played by American song in the cultural development of our society. Our presentations are designed to increase and enhance the awareness of the general public with regard to the rich, historical significance of our American musical tradition. As such -- via lecture, live music, and audio and video excerpts -- we recount the life stories and career highlights of those who composed the music, wrote the words, or performed the classic, popular melodies and lyrics. These are the men and women who have immeasurably informed our lives and world... and whose accomplishments remain the standard to which all others have aspired or been compared. Description: This is the second of a three-part survey course providing the student with an introduction to the career and repertoire of stage and screen dance legend Fred Astaire. Our Course Objectives for Part 2: 1. To trace the progression of the Astaire screen partnership with Ginger Rogers from its early peak to the conclusion of their 1930s association...and the evolution of his work to 1947. 2. To come to an appreciation of the role his wife played in Astaire’s professional focus and personal peace-of-mind. 3. To learn about Astaire’s ability to “couple” with other outstanding contemporary dancers. 4. To appreciate his contributions to the War Effort...and to understand his reasons for retirement from -- and return to -- the screen. Suggested Reading: Astaire: The Man and The Dancer, Bob Thomas; St. Martin’s Press, 1984 Starring Fred Astaire, Stanley Green; Dodd, Mead & Company, 1973 Astaire Dancing, John Mueller; Alfred A. Knopf, 1985 Suggested Listening: Fred Astaire Golden Greats, 3-CD set Fred Astaire & Ginger Rogers at RKO
