Legendary composer-conductor Marvin Hamlisch, Broadway star Melissa Errico and Kevin Cole -- who's been called "the best Gershwin pianist in America today" by the Chicago Tribune
-- perform George Gershwin's greatest hits under the summer stars at Wolf Trap. From An American in Paris, Rhapsody in Blue
and Porgy and Bess
to "Embraceable You," "I Got Rhythm," and beyond, musical geniuses George and his lyricist brother Ira Gershwin, created some of the most influential and beautiful popular and orchestral music of the 20th century. On hand to interpret these classics is Marvin Hamlisch, the principal Pops conductor for the Pittsburgh, Milwaukee, Dallas, Pasadena, Seattle and San Diego Symphonies and a multiple-EGOT (Emmy, Grammy, Oscar and Tony) winner. Composer of more than 40 film scores, including The Way We Were
, Hamlisch scored a Pulitzer Prize for his classic A Chorus Line
. Also appearing are Melissa Errico, a Tony nominee who's appeared on Broadway in Anna Karenina, My Fair Lady, High Society, Amour
along with acclaimed jazz pianist Kevin Cole, a Gershwin specialist.
