Our ever-popular January concert continues as the season’s joyful celebration of Gershwin works, occasionally augmented with works by near-contemporary composers. This year the stage is shared with another George, the beloved Romanian composer George Enescu (whose two rhapsodies are based on traditional Romanian folk tunes). Both Gershwin rhapsodies, brilliantly performed by internationally renowned British piano virtuoso Peter Donohoe, are featured, along with other Gershwin favorites, Variations on “I Got Rhythm,” Cuban Overture and An American in Paris. Order your tickets early, as this concert regularly sells out!

Running time: 2 hours 30 minutes, including one intermission
