Gershwin: _ An American in Paris _
The first notes of the first concert of Summer and the Symphony July events augur the delights to come all month long! George Gershwin’s smash musical Girl Crazy yielded such tunes as “Embraceable You,” “I Got Rhythm,” and more treasures of American musical theater. Where Girl Crazy is all froth and fun,_ An American in Paris_ is serious exuberance. Written to evoke the sights and sounds of 1920s Paris, it is Gershwin’s best known – and best loved – concert work.
