    George Gershwin, American Music, and His Remarkable Masterpiece Presented by Professor Orin Grossman of Fairfield University Gershwin wrote his first hit songs at the age of 19, and was a successful songwriter from then on. He created concert works out of melodies and rhythms that come out of the popular music of his day - Broadway ballads, ragtime, Latin dance rhythms, and the Blues. Professor Grossman's lecture will demonstrate the unique way Gershwin composed, including his very first and most popular concert work, Rhapsody in Blue. And yes - Professor Grossman (who is a concert level pianist) will play excerpts from that American masterpiece. Professor Grossman is renowned internationally for his knowledge of the music of Gershwin. He lectures and performs concerts throughout the U.S. and Europe, and he teaches Performing Arts at Fairfield University. His presentation will explore why George Gershwin was a true rarity in American music, someone at home both in popular and classical music. Fee: $99
