Revel in a glorious evening of iconic American music by one of the most indelible composers of the twentieth century, George Gershwin.

Nearly a century after the songs were composed, Gershwin’s music remains as fresh and irresistible as it did during the Jazz Age. His poetic melodies and eclectic oeuvre of everything including Broadway, Hollywood, opera and classic American standards have left a legacy that audiences love to hear again and again.

Led by vocalist Michael Andrew, hailed as “the next Harry Connick Jr.” by The New York Post, the 17-piece Gershwin Big Band and guest vocalist Michelle Amato bring beloved Gershwin standards like "I Got Rhythm," "Someone to Watch Over Me" and many more to life in this inspirational new program produced and created by members of the Gershwin family.

*Premium ticket includes admission to our pre-show cocktail Speakeasy! (6:00 PM in The VETS Loft). Be transported back in time to the Big Band, Lindy Hop Roaring Twenties!
