Gershwin, that is. The 107th anniversary of George Gershwin’s birth was Tuesday. Power Line has a celebration.
I’ll be celebrating Gershwin’s music myself this weekend. I’m part of Livingston Square, a Regina quartet (the other singers are Evan Purchase, Dianne Burrows and Carolyn Speirs; Alison Purdy is our accompanist), and this Sunday, October 1, we’re performing an all-Gershwin concert, called, appropriately, “Let’s Call the Whole Thing Gershwin,” a mixture of solos, duets and group numbers, at Knox Metropolitan United Church at 7 p.m. Tickets are $15, and available at the door.
If you live around here, check it out!
