Presented in association with Neranenah Arts, the international hit comes to Sandy Springs on its final world tour! As the only artist ever permitted to create the role of George Gershwin on the stage by the Gershwin heirs, Hershey Felder illuminates the composer’s short but extraordinary life and performs A Rhapsody in Blue in its entirety.
Felder’s exploration of George Gershwin’s short but extraordinary life has played to audiences worldwide for over 3,000 performances from Los Angeles to South Korea, and spotlights Gershwin’s work as a master tunesmith whose work shaped a distinctly American style of music.
