Annual Concert: GERSHWIN AND FRIENDS
Posted by admin on Nov 28, 2017
DIRECTED BY: CURT SCHROEDER
PERFORMANCES: APRIL 27-28-29
Everyone recognizes a Gershwin song even if not everyone can say who wrote it. United Airlines even used the composer’s “Rhapsody in Blue” in one of its longest running commercial themes. Gershwin’s songbook is a thick one so selecting music from it for a fundraising event was no easy chore. But the job is done and the result is sure to be a feast for the musical ear. Before the main course is served, there will be appetizers made of songs from Cole Porter, Duke Ellington and George M. Cohan. Mark your calendar now for an evening of music, food and fun.
