Classic Gershwin at The Jazz Room – Christmas Special

Our most popular production is back at the Jazz Room for a special Christmas show

“Terrific!”

“A wonderful show”

“a glorious and intriguing celebration of Gershwin’s life and work”

The vibrant music of George Gershwin is interwoven with his fascinating life story from birth in the colourful, teeming New York of 1898 to his tragically early death in 1937.

Join Viv McLean, piano and Susan Porrett, narrator in the intimate Jazz Room at The Bull’s Head for an intriguing, eclectic mix of Gershwin’s music from the much-loved ‘Rhapsody in Blue’, ‘I got Rhythm Variations’ and ‘Swanee’ to the rarely-played, classical Preludes.

Tickets £15 in advance or £18 on the door

 

“Vividly illustrated.. rapturously received.. highly recommended.”
