AMERICAN/RHAPSODY melds together a dizzying array of genres – classical, ballet, jazz, and more!  George Gershwin created a sound just as big and alive as America itself. On August 20th the evening shifts its focus onto music by those Gershwin himself was influenced by and, in turn, those he influenced. Pianist HyeJin Kim joins Rachael Worby and her orchestra in a performance of "Rhapsody in Blue" while dancers from BODYTRAFFIC dance to the orchestrated versions of Gershwin's "Three Preludes" and Kurt Weil's (arrangement by the Oscar Peterson Trio + 1) classic "Mack the Knife." Whether it is jazz or classical, we can hear the exchange of big ideas between these giants of modern music.

Event opens at 5:30 for mingling and dining.
