After seeing the Gershwin musical, Nice Work If You Can Get It, on
Broadway last fall, Tim was inspired to explore the lives and music of the
Gershwin brothers, George and Ira. Holt will perform and play songs from the
musical, including "'S Wonderful" and "Do Do Do," as well as selections from
Porgy and Bess, and other works by the Gershwin team. He'll discuss
their contribution to American popular music and give a behind-the-scenes look
at how they weaved music and words seamlessly together. Tim will also discuss
the work of other great composers from that era: Harold Arlen ("Somewhere Over
The Rainbow"), Irving Berlin ("Cheek To Cheek") and Jerome Kern ("'Ol Man
River"). As in his other programs, Tim will encourage audience members to
celebrate our musical heritage by singing right along with him.
