Read Book Review

"As stylishly produced as a successful 1920s musical, scattering its variegated pictorial elements across every chapter, “The Gershwins and Me” provides, as those productions did, a clutch of the memorable songs that still link the name “Gershwin” to the fond memories of millions of Americans."

As always, concertgoers who want a traditional concert experience will have seating options throughout the hall.
