GERSHWIN: Rhapsodies

GERSHWIN: Rhapsodies

Presented by Kalamazoo Symphony Orchestra at Western Michigan University - Miller Auditorium

Charting a musical voyage from Tin Pan Alley to St. Petersburg.

One of the great American composers of the Jazz age, Gershwin’s two Rhapsodies for piano and orchestra are the highlight of the evening. With Gershwin’s distinctly American style, the orchestra will be crowing like a big band. Two orchestral showpieces—featuring the orchestra in all its virtuosity—open and close the program.

Conductor: Daniel Brier, KSO Resident Conductor
Guest Soloist: Kevin Cole, piano
