George Gershwin was one of the great musical geniuses of the 20th century. In this course we'll explore (and sing!) the extraordinary songs he wrote with his lyricist brother Ira, for his Broadway musicals and Hollywood films. We'll also listen to and discuss his orchestral jazz masterpiece, Rhapsody in Blue.
The Gershwin legacy remains as vibrant, fresh and compelling today as it was almost a hundred years ago!
