Boston Pops on Tour – Iowa City, IA
March 25 @ 8:00 pm
By George! The Boston Pops Plays Gershwin
Keith Lockhart, conductor
Michael Chertock, piano
The Boston Pops celebrates one of the key composers of the Great American Songbook. Enter a world of speakeasies and bathtub gin, of flappers and Tin Lizzies, of jazz and a man named George Gershwin. The Pops will bring its own unique swagger to the rarely-heard original orchestration of Rhapsody in Blue and then present a reconstruction of Paul Whiteman’s tight and jazzy version of An American in Paris.
