There is no better composer to bring young listeners to the magnificent world of symphonic music than George Gershwin. He wrote funny and timeless show tunes such as “You say Ee-ther and I say Eye-ther,” but also the Opera “Porgy and Bess.” He wrote adorable symphonic miniatures such as “Walking the Dog,” but also the iconic “Rhapsody in Blue.”
This virtual presentation by Kenneth Korn blends both live and recorded performances of Gershwin’s fun and easy-to-digest music, but also introduces participants to his more substantial compositions as well, especially "Porgy and Bess." Gershwin did not compose his show tunes to a lower standard than his symphonic music. Ken will show how the same level of sophistication and brilliance found in ‘Concerto in F’ is also found in ‘Fidgety Feet.’ Likewise, the wit and humor of Gershwin’s show tunes permeates his concert works as well.
