YES! IT'S GERSHWIN!     -   CHOREOGRAPHY JILL EATHORNE BAHR

SATURDAY APRIL 20, 2013 7:30 PM
ONE NIGHT ONLY!
CHARLESTON MUSIC HALL

Yes! It’s Gershwin

You’ve never seen A Rhapsody in Blue staged like this before! Jill Eathorne Bahr choreographs the music of the great George Gershwin again! Just as she did ten years ago with An American in Paris (also on this program), Ms. Bahr has created another of her lovely, poetic compositions for one of Gershwin’s most well-loved  compositions.

​​ 

About A Rhapsody in Blue,​ perhaps the composer said it best himself in 1931:

​“It was on the train, with its steely rhythms, its rattle-ty bang, that is so often so stimulating to a composer – I frequently hear music in the very heart of the noise... And there I suddenly heard, and even saw on paper – the complete construction of the Rhapsody, from beginning to end. No new themes came to me, but I worked on the thematic material already in my mind and tried to conceive the composition as a whole. I heard it as a sort of musical kaleidoscope of America, of our vast melting pot, of our unduplicated national pep, of our metropolitan madness. By the time I reached Boston I had a definite plot of the piece, as distinguished from its actual substance.”

George Gershwin to his biographer, Isaac Goldberg, 1931.
