An American in Paris: Gershwin's Europe

1:00 PM to 2:30 PM
Add to Calendar 10/21/2017 01:00 PM 10/21/2017 02:30 PM America/New_York An American in Paris: Gershwin's Europe

In partnership with the Grand Rapids Symphony, Blue Lake Public Radio’s Foley Schuler presents An American in Paris: Gershwin's Europe. Drawing upon a near-lifelong fascination with George Gershwin, Blue Lake Public Radio's Foley Schuler will take the American composer's music as a point of departure for exploring another of his favorite themes--the relationship between classical music and what is thought by many to be America's classical music--jazz--and trace the influence of this uniquely American art form on European composers of the 1920's and beyond, through a combination of anecdotes, analysis and musical excerpts.
