No one composer has ever captured the spirit of American music like George Gershwin. The mere mention of his name evokes memories of the Jazz Age, The Roaring 20’s, flappers and a wealth of musicals that came from a creative imagination unmatched by his contemporaries. These rhapsodic sounds, from opera to concert, Vaudeville to Broadway, wash over the Arboretum Green in an incomparable Gershwin extravaganza featuring pianist Kevin Cole in Rhapsody in Blue, critically acclaimed as the definitive interpreter of the music of George Gershwin.
