George Gershwin & American Popular Song

9/16/2013
7:00 - 8:00

Sunset

Sunset: Área Juvenil

1305 18th Ave.

Tim Holt performs and plays songs from the musical "Nice Work If You Can Get It," including " 'S Wonderful" and "Do Do Do," as well as selections from "Porgy & Bess" and other works by the Gershwin brothers, George & Ira. He will discuss their contributions to American popular music and give a behind-the-scenes look at how they wove music and words seamlessly together.

Tim will also discuss the work of other great composers from that era: Harold Arlen ("Somewhere Over The Rainbow"), Irving Berlin ("Cheek To Cheek") and Jerome Kern ("'Ol' Man River").

As in his other programs, Tim encourages audience members to celebrate our musical heritage by singing right along with him.
