Strike Up the Band! – The Music of George Gershwin
“Porgy and Bess,” “Embraceable You,” “Someone to Watch Over Me,” “An American in Paris” and more! Join the Patriots Symphonic Band as they perform the outstanding music of one of the most significant and popular composers of all time – George Gershwin. Gershwin’s ability to blend popular, Broadway musical theatre, jazz, and classical styles means there will be exciting music for everyone to enjoy. The Patriots heartily welcome two very special guests: Professor Sanford Margolis as piano soloist to perform Gershwin’s masterpiece “Rhapsody in Blue,” and the talented soprano vocalist Laura Pedersen to warm your heart with a variety of Gershwin’s romantic ballads and fun Broadway classics.
