Although we’re currently in the middle of a heat-wave here in the midwest USA, today is the first official day of Fall! To celebrate the occasion, I thought I’d throw up a quick post highlighting some of my favorite autumn-themed, musical theatre and jazz ballads to sing and assign students throughout the season. So, grab your favorite sweater and a pumpkin spice latte, and enjoy these melancholy fall classics!
