An evening of all American composers featuring music deeply rooted in the culture that binds us all together. Influenced by the spirit and sounds of jazz, Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue, has enchanted audiences since its premiere in 1924. Composer-in-Residence Gabriel Kahane’s emergency shelter intake form will feature Alicia Hall Moran, who made her Broadway debut in Porgy and Bess, starring as Bess, and a choir of members who have been affected by homelessness. Kahane’s piece shines an essential light on our society through music that will inspire, bring hope, and stir the soul.
