gates open @ 5:30pm | concert @ 7:30pm at the LA County Arboretum
“It will be my great joy to present a unique and singular program devoted to the works of George and Ira Gershwin. The selections will range from well-known standards, to some delicious rarities that I hope will delight our listeners – for it is a rare experience to have the perfect combination of orchestra, guest soloists, audience, and venue to present what I hope will be a fresh and memorable celebration of these treasured artists.
Our guest vocalists are stage and television star Tom Wopat, a particularly wonderful singer of American Popular music, and Catherine Russell, who is highly acclaimed for her recent jazz recordings of standards and for her way with a lyric. She is one of my favorite singers.” - Michael Feinstein
