A tribute to the music of George Gershwin and the many composers and lyricists that he was close to in his short life. We all know what a great composer he was, but George Gershwin also led an amazing social life, which included friendships and collaborations with many other composers and lyricists, some of whom he helped to get their start or move up in their careers. On this special night, we will celebrate some of Gershwin’s most beloved songs and lesser known gems, as well as songs from some of his closest friends and associates, including Jerome Kern, Harold Arlen, Kay Swift, Irving Berlin and Vernon Duke.
