Join us as we explore the genius of Cole Porter's melodies and lyrics. Howard Lewis will be with us to provide his witty commentary on the life and extraordinary works of this American icon! We'll visit Cole Porter's classics Such as “It's De-Lovely”, “Night And Day”, “Begin the Beguine”, “You're The Top”, to name just a few. “Let's Do It”, Let's All Raise Our Voices To This Great Music With Which We're...“SO IN LOVE”! - Join us!

Sing! Sing! Sing! is an original concept featuring a small group of rehearsed singers who joyfully ease the audience into singing “all the songs you love to sing”. Complete lyric sheets are provided and each song is introduced with a brief and entertaining commentary. Their American Composer Series, literally sings the praises of the songwriters of the 1930s ’40s and ’50s. Other programs reach back to include Stephen Foster (the “Spirit of America”) and forward to the present (“Academy Award Winning Songs”). Don't miss this collection of some of the best of the Great American Songbook!  

20$ admission / 10$ Children and Mt. Olive Members! / Free parking!

A GoFundMe account has been set up for one of our teachers at Mt Olive Preschool.

Baby Jesse was born on November 6, 2016 with several serious health issues including several holes in his heart. He is recovering from his 2nd open-heart operation that was performed on October 20th . Next year he will require another heart operation. Beatriz Reyes works in our 2-year-old classroom and has been a teacher at Mt Olive for 10 years. Beatriz is married and has two other children. This has been a very difficult time emotionally and financially for the family.

Any donations to help with baby Jesse’s medical costs would be appreciated. You can donate on the GoFundMe site: GoFundMe/BabyJesseFund, or you can write a check to Mt Olive Preschool with Baby Jesse Fund in the memo. Thank you.
