A Look at George Gershwin's Life and Legacy


Popular composer George Gershwin bridged the worlds of classical music and jazz. WRTI's Susan Lewis considers Gershwin and his musical legacy as The Philadelphia Orchestra gets ready to perform a program featuring his famous RHAPSODY IN BLUE, with conductor James Gaffigan and pianist Stewart Goodyear, on March 8th, 9th, and 10th at the Kimmel Center.

As senior producer of arts and culture, Susan writes and produces stories about music and the arts. She’s host and producer of WRTI’s TIME IN online interview series, and producer of The Philadelphia Orchestra in Concert series, to which she also contributes weekly intermission interviews. She’s also been a regular host of WRTI’s Live from the Performance Studio sessions.
