This being the 80th anniversary of George Gershwin’s death, our January concert offers an exclusive musical feast of some of Gershwin’s most popular compositions, including An American in Paris, the Concerto in F, and the Rhapsody in Blue. Internationally renowned piano virtuoso Peter Donohoe returns to dazzle us with his keyboard brilliance as he performs on the Bösendorfer Imperial Grand Piano, while Kevin Deas and Julie-Ann Green will reprise their roles as Porgy and Bess in excerpts from Gershwin’s landmark American folk opera. This ever-popular January concert regularly sells out. Order your tickets early!
