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.

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