Generously underwritten by Judith Carney and Linda Haller Revel in an evening of iconic American music by one of the most indelible composers of the 20th century, George Gershwin. Nearly a century after the songs were composed, Gershwin's music remains as fresh and irresistible as it did during the Jazz Age. His poetic melodies and eclectic oeuvre of everything including Broadway, Hollywood, opera and classic American standards have left a legacy audiences love to hear again and again. The Gershwin Big Band led by Michael Andrew, whom the New York Post called "the next Harry Connick Jr. ... a natural bandleader," brings George Gershwin's music to life in this brand-new program.
