Gershwin in Leicester


1st July 2014

Crazy for Gershwin

George and Ira Gershwin wrote some of the most loved music in the American songbook and Crazy for Gershwin is packed with some of their very best work.

Including: Someone to Watch Over Me, excerpts from Porgy and Bess, A Foggy Day in London Town which will be performed by the London Concert Orchestra and special guest vocalists, the highly acclaimed Meeta Raval and Rodney Earl Clarke.

However, that is not all. Bringing some heart-stoppingly fast paced and highly skilled dance to the proceedings will be dancers James Wilson and  Leila Stewart and West End tap dancing sensations Oliver Botterill and Lucy-Alexa Gilbert. They will be performing to pieces such as ‘S Wonderful, Lady be Good, Swannee and I Got Rhythm.

The line up will be completed by talented pianist Jonathan Scott who will bring all his skill to performing Rhapsody in Blue, arguably one of the most important musical pieces of the twentieth century.
