Friday, September 28, 2018 5:15-6:15pm, Nevada Historical Society
Gershwin’s Legacy
The first concert the Reno Phil played featured music by iconic American composer George Gershwin, and we will open this season with a nod to that history by performing two works by Gershwin. The lecture will also explore Maurice Ravel’s influence on Gershwin, and why Ravel refused him as a student! Come find out more in this lecture presented by musicologists Dr. Mark Clague and Timothy Freeze.
