Looking for a Speaker for Your Event?
Debbie Darling is a speaker by profession and has, as part of her speaking repertoire, a host of hour long musical talks that are both entertaining and informative. She delivers these talks all over the country to women's groups, over 50 residential communities, country clubs, Kiwanis, Rotary, and independent living facilities. If you are looking for something different for your next meeting consider booking Debbie to perform one of her entertaining musical talks for you. They include:
The Great American Songbook
This talk goes into depth on the Songbook itself and four of the most prolific writers of the Songbook: Cole Porter, George Gershwin, Hoagy Carmichael and Harold Arlen. Ms. Darling talks about each composer and then sings some of their most famous songs. This is one of her most requested talks.
Ms. Darling takes you on a journey through the life of one of the most legendary performers of all time-Judy Garland. As she leads you through the ups and downs of Garland's tragic life Debbie performs many of her greatest hits along the way.
This talk is all about Richard Rodgers and his collaborations with both Lorenz Hart and Oscar Hammerstein II. Ms. Darling sings songs from both collaborations.
Songs of the 30s, 40s, 50s and 60s
This talk is a musical walk down memory lane. Ms. Darling describes what was happening in each era in the world and what prompted some of the most noted pieces of music to be written. She then performs hits from each decade.
Ms. Darling not only performs the most loved holiday music but provides interesting anecdotes on some of the most famous holiday songs ever written.
Debbie provides a rich history of Sinatra and his music. She performs some of his most famous songs and explains what was happening in the singer's life at the time he recorded them.

Musical Topic of Your Choosing
If you have a musical topic or performer you would like to hear about do not hesitate to ask Debbie to put it together. As long as the topic or performer falls in the category of the Great American Songbook, she is happy to research it for you and put together something especially for your group.
