Five mini-musicals take you on a thrilling ride through the songs that made the Gershwin brothers the most successful songwriting team in musical history in 'S Wonderful. This musical features more than 40 of the Gershwins' classic hits, including "Let's Call the Whole Thing Off," "Shall We Dance," "Someone to Watch Over Me" and "Rhapsody in Blue." A series of charming vignettes, set around the globe between 1924 and the present, serve as the backdrops for this spirited homage to the golden age of musical theater. It's nostalgic, it's exciting -- it's 'S Wonderful. Learn More
Howard Cowles is recognized as one of Southern California’s most popular and innovative pianists. Born in Orange, California to a classical pianist mother, his attachment to her Mason-Hamlin Grand Piano was obvious at a very early age. His youth was spent listening to and studying the classical masters. Music was a common sound in his adolescent years; he was influenced by all types of music from classical to rock, including Elton John, Barry Manilow, and Roger Williams.
Howard’s fist music teacher was his mother, Esther, a classical pianist and teacher herself. His current CD, “A Mother’s Garden,” was produced in her memory. Howard will be performing new songs off his new release “A Mother’s Garden,” as well as selections form his past albums. Howard will be joined by special guests throughout the night.
