Red, White & Rhapsody in Blue

Red, White & Rhapsody in Blue

Sat, August 29, 2020 6:00 PM, PDT

Let's celebrate the end of summer together with an All-American program featuring gorgeous music of Amy Beach (America's first female composer), Zach Gulaboff Davis (a current day award-winning composer), and George Gershwin. What could be more celebratory than performing Rhapsody in Blue with two hands for you after three years of right hand recovery from four surgeries to heal fractures? Looking forward to sharing music together.


Amy Beach: Dreaming
Zach Gulaboff Davis: Nocturne written for Lisa Spector
Gershwin-Wild: 3 Virtuoso Etudes
Embraceable You
The Man I Love for left hand only
Fascinatin' Rhythm
Gershwin Rhapsody in Blue

Hey Groupmusers - Thanks for waiting patiently last night as we worked out the technical glitch and quickly changed to a new YouTube link. Phew, glad we made it.

It was a pleasure sharing music with you and "meeting" some of you post concert in the Zoom room.

The YouTube video didn't save any of your wonderful comments, and I only caught a couple live. I'd love to see what you wrote. Feel free to share them here or in an email to me at [email protected].

Thanks so much! Hope to stream you soon.

Play on,
