Gershwin: Two Ways

George Gershwin

Celebrate George Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue this winter.

Music has always been a big part of our lives. As children, Heather learned to play the violin, while I spent years taking piano lessons.

Whether you’re singing in the choir, or learning to play an instrument, you’re bound to discover various composers whose works stick with you. Rachmaninoff, Tchaikovsky, Beethoven, and Mozart. As young musicians, we learned something from each of them.

But it was George Gershwin’s masterpiece, “Rhapsody in Blue,” that captured my imagination from the first time I heard it. And Gershwin’s music continues to wow me to this day.

Now you have the chance to enjoy this classic once again. First, there’s the concert: Gershwin: From New York to Paris playing at Cincinnati’s Music Hall on New Year’s Eve. Tickets to this all-Gershwin extravaganza start as low as $10!

Then, Disney is re-releasing Fantasia and Fantasia 2000 (which includes Rhapsody in Blue) on Disney Blu-Ray and DVD in a four-disc set. But hurry, it’s only coming out of the Disney vault for a limited time.

We hope you’re able to catch one, if not both, of these marvelous tributes to one of America’s greatest musical influences, George Gershwin.

And, if you’re still not sure if you’ll like Gershwin, simply watch the video below for a sample of this icon’s phenomenal work. We know you’ll love it!
