At 15, he was plugging songs on Tin Pan Alley. By 17, he was writing for Broadway. Then at 21, he wrote a song called “Swanee”…and the rest is history!

Today, George Gershwin is revered as one of America’s greatest composers. The songs he wrote for Broadway shows like LADY, BE GOOD, FUNNY FACE, STRIKE UP THE BAND, STRIKE UP THE BAND, GIRL CRAZY and PORGY AND BESS and films like SHALL WE DANCE? and DAMSEL IN DISTRESS fill a large portion of what we now call our Great American Songbook: songs like “’S Wonderful!,” “But Not For Me,” “Love Walkin In,” “A Foggy Day,” “The Man I Love,” “Someone to Watch Over Me,” “Summertime,” “Embraceable You” and “How Long Has This Been Going On?” Join us for a celebration of the music of the “One and Only” George Gershwin!
