Rhapsody In Calabasas: ‘The Music Of George And Ira Gershwin’

It’s “summertime, and the livin’ is easy,” so I lean on friends like Dylan Busse at Spotlight the Arts Foundation to assure you that culture is alive and well in the West Valley! Imagine Gershwin under the Stars! I hope you and your family take advantage of their 4th Annual Summer Cabaret featured in the local paper, The Acorn:

Spotlight shines on the Gershwins (read the full story at The Acorn)

Spotlight the Arts will present a revue, “Fascinating Rhythm: The Music Of George And Ira Gershwin,” for two nights under the stars at 8 p.m. Fri. and Sat., July 27 and 28 at the Calabasas outdoor amphitheater behind the Calabasas Library, 200 Civic Center Way.

The show will feature a collage of Gershwin songs such as “Strike Up The Band,” “An American in Paris” and “Shall We Dance” and renditions of “I’ve Got Rhythm,” “Someone to Watch Over Me” and “Nice Work, If You Can Get It.”

Director-performer Taylor Shubert and performers Paige Berkovitz and Rachel Hirschfield are students at Boston Conservatory; performer Jenny Lester attends Point Park University. Also singing in the show will be Dylan Shubert, who studies at the College-Conservatory of Music.
