Our traditional annual January concert returns with its joyful celebration of music by Gershwin “and more” great American composers, featuring internationally renowned British pianist Peter Donohoe, who returns  to dazzle us with his piano brilliance. In addition to favorite compositions by Gershwin are works by legendary jazz titan Duke Ellington, as well as works by Aaron Copland and Henry Mancini (first time in our programming). Four composers with vastly different musical styles, each reflecting a different facet of the music that defines America. This popular concert consistently sells out, so order your tickets early!

Running time: 2 hours 30 minutes – one intermission
