People view classical music the same way they view kale - they know it's good for them, but still won't eat any. We know the wonderful word of classical music is out there, but are still searching for the recipe that will make it palatable. There is no better composer to bring new listeners to the magnificent world of symphonic music than George Gershwin. He wrote funny and timeless show tunes such as “You say Ee-ther and I say Eye-ther,” but also the opera ``Porgy and Bess.” He wrote adorable symphonic miniatures such as “Walking the Dog'' but also the iconic “Rhapsody in Blue”
Musician and educator, Ken Korn blends both live and recorded performances of Gershwin's fun and easy to digest music, but also introduces participants to his more substantial compositions as well. Gershwin did not compose his show tunes to a lower standard than his symphonic music. Come learn how the same level of sophistication and brilliance found in his ‘Concerto in F’ is also found in ‘Fidgety Feet.’ Likewise the wit and humor of his show tunes permeates his concert works as well.
