Crazy for Gershwin

Part of Classical Season 2020/21

It's time to strike up the band at this all-Gershwin celebration of music, song and dance.

American composer George Gershwin enjoyed a glamorous and sophisticated celebrity status. His life was filled with enduring and remarkable harmonies that captured the 1920s New York style, none more striking and innovative than his timeless and spine-tingling Rhapsody in Blue.
