Gerswin's Magic Key
Gershwin's Magic Key tells the story of a chance meeting on the streets of New York City between a poor newspaper boy and the great American composer, George Gershwin. The orchestra magically weaves Gershwin's greatest hits into the drama as the master composer shares historical anecdotes about his life and musical passions. A bonding friendship develops as they explore the vast melting pot of American music together, and discover the key to unlocking the boy's own musical potential.
Audiences will be captivated by more than twenty of Gershwin's most popular works, from classical compositions like Cuban Overture, Concerto in F and Rhapsody in Blue to popular hits from the American Songbook including I Got Rhythm, Stairway to Paradise, and Fascinating Rhythm.
