The composers' craft


Our November meeting was at The Cube at Ruby Blue, in Leicester Square, thanks to the warm hospitality of manager Robert and his team.
We were enthralled by composer Henry Lewis who presented some of his well known 'ditties' produced on Broadway and the West End and sung by very well known artists. He explained the variety of songs he has created, including political satire, protest songs, musical comedy, and revues. Thank you Henry!
