Greetings one and all from Ronald Kaplan, executive director of American 
Songbook Preservation Society! 

Our Mission: To preserve our cultural treasure known as the Great American 
Songbook by presenting this music to the public at home and abroad as 
Ambassadors of Song. 

Please join us in our fund-raising efforts to achieve our goal of $10,000 by 
year end.
We have some very special opportunities for you to do so.
We are a 501 (C) (3) not-for-profit charitable organization, and so your 
donations are tax-deductible. You may donate online by check or credit card

You can also send us a check directly to American Songbook Preservation 
Society, 9051-A Soquel Drive Aptos, California 95003. You will receive an

Our year end goal will enable us to complete and disseminate our 2 film 
projects that include our Mother’s Day concert featuring 15 of L.A’s finest 
Singers and a documentary film about our mission and purpose to keep this 
music out in front of the public for the next 100 years and beyond. 

For those of you in the San Francisco bay area, we have a wonderful 
opportunity to see a zany and delightful one man show by the extremely 
talented  Mark Nadler, entitled Russian on the Side. This 90 minute show is 
an amusing, educational, fast paced romp through the 1941 song, Tschaikowsky 
(and Other Russians) written by Kurt Weill with lyrics by Ira Gershwin from 
the 1941 classic Broadway musical Lady in the Dark, which also became a 
Hollywood music film featuring Danny Kaye in both productions. 

We have 10 tickets for this show to offer in appreciation for your donation 
on any Tuesday through Thursday November 4-6th & 11-13th, so please act 
fast! You don’t want to miss this.
