FIRST WORKS - American Rhapsody - The Gershwin Song Book
Wednesday, Feb 22
Revel in a glorious evening of iconic music by one of the most indelible composers of the twentieth century, George Gershwin.

Nearly a century after the songs were composed, Gershwin’s music remains as fresh and irresistible as it did during the Jazz Age.

His poetic melodies and eclectic oeuvre spanning everything from Broadway and Hollywood, to opera and classic American standards have left a legacy that audiences love to hear again and again.

Led by vocalist Michael Andrew, hailed as “the next Harry Connick Jr.” by The New York Post, the 17-piece Gershwin Big Band brings beloved Gershwin standards like "I Got Rhythm," "Someone to Watch O’er Me" and many more to life in this inspirational new program produced and created by members of the Gershwin family.
Premium ticket includes admission to our pre-show cocktail Speakeasy (6:00 PM in The VETS Loft). Be transported back in time to the Big Band, Lindy Hop Roaring Twenties!
