Tuesday, February 26, 2019
7:30 pm, Packard Performance Hall
Why is it that nearly a century after its emergence, the music of George Gershwin continues to engage audiences around the world? Singer-songwriter and corporate executive Denise Young Smith and Colorado College Music Professor Ryan Bañagale engage this question by exploring the ways we experience Gershwin’s music. This conversational lecture-performance includes standards from the Gershwin songbook as well as little-known pieces from the Gershwin archive.
