PERFORMANCE
Join us for an evening celebrating the legendary George Gershwin, one of Broadway’s greatest American composers and pianists of all time. Gershwin wrote some of the best known and beloved songs of Broadway, including I Got Rhythm, S’Wonderful, and Summertime, and contributed some of the most important works in American music history such as Rhapsody in Blue and An American in Paris.

Prepare for a tantalizing live performance of a broad selection of Gershwin’s most popular songs, anecdotes about his life, and an exploration of his unique musical style. We will also take a glimpse into rare archival footage, as well as explore Gershwin’s less-known talent in the visual arts. For music and art lovers alike, this evening is not to be missed!
