Full Season & Family Series

Gershwin’s Magic Key is the first-ever educationally entertaining theatrical
symphony concert exposing children and their parents to the extraordinary
life and musical masterpieces of one of the greatest American composers of
all time! The story tells of a chance meeting on the streets of New York City
between a poor newspaper boy and the great American composer, George
Gershwin. The orchestra magically weaves Gershwin’s greatest hits into the
drama as the master composer shares historical anecdotes about his life and
musical passion. Audiences will be captivated by over twenty of Gershwin’s
most popular compositions from classical compositions including Porgy & Bess,
American in Paris, Cuban Overture, Concerto in F and Rhapsody in Blue to
popular hits from the American Songbook including I Got Rhythm, Swanee,
Stairway to Paradise, Someone to Watch Over Me, and Fascinating Rhythm.
