|Dear friends of the Greater Bridgeport Symphony,
Many of us are exploring the availability of streaming and taped cultural events during these difficult times.
As president of the Board of Trustees of the Greater Bridgeport Symphony I wanted to let you that I will be offering a series of presentations featuring the music of George Gershwin. As a pianist and lecturer I have been performing, thinking about, and discussing George Gershwin’s music for most of my professional life and his music has always brought me joy.
Beginning Tuesday, April 14, at 4:00 p.m., I will be hosting a weekly streaming event featuring Gershwin’s songs and other compositions on behalf of two amazing cultural resources for Fairfield County–the Quick Center for the Arts at Fairfield University and the Greater Bridgeport Symphony.
In each presentation of about 15 or 20 minutes I will perform and discuss a number of his Broadway songs and other compositions, all in Gershwin’s own brilliant piano arrangements.
To access these broadcasts simply go to “theQuicklive.com” at 4:00 p.m., next Tuesday, April 14. Mix your favorite 1920’s drink, pull up an armchair or two, and enjoy this excursion into the world of George Gershwin.
Subsequent weekly broadcasts will be at the same time at the same site. I hope you will join me.
Every good wish and stay safe,
