The Dress Circle: Gershwin Interpreted

a_gershwin_interpreted_montage_0.jpg

George and Ira Gershwin are the featured composing team on this week’s Dress Circle (7-7 7:00 p.m.) on a program entitled “Gershwin Interpreted.”  Some of the theatre songs include “I Got Rhythm,” “Fascinatin’ Rhythm,” “The Man I Love,” “Mine,” and “Sweet and Low Down.”  Interpreting these works and more are favorites like Judy Garland, Ella Fitzgerald, Bing Crosby, Paul Whiteman, Jimmy Dorsey, Lena Horne, and Cliff Edwards.  We’ll also be including The Boston Pops in an orchestral arrangement of Gershwin’s Three Preludes and Larry Adler in a unique rendition of Rhapsody in Blue.   

Join us for an hour of fabulous music and interesting performances to commemorate the passing of George, shortly before his 39th birthday on July 11, 1937.

Michael is program host and host of the WWFM Sunday Opera, Sundays at 3 pm, and co-host of The Dress Circle, Sundays at 7 pm.
