Tonights program also features Helen Welch, wholl sing some of the brothers standards. Plus, several rarely heard Gershwin compositions are on tap -- like the other Rhapsody, better known as New York Rhapsody. Its a fantastic piece that evokes the big city, says Schissel, who went back and tweaked the score to undo some changes that were made over the years. Im going over the fixes made by other composers, so you can hear Gershwin as close to what Gershwin originally wrote.
The orchestra is also holding a preconcert beer tasting starting at 5:30 p.m. For $15, participants receive five samples, snacks, a commemorative glass, and a slight buzz to go with all that Gershwin.
