This is the story of a poor newspaper boy's encounter with the great American composer, George Gershwin. The Reno Phil will perform his greatest works as he shared historical anecdotes about his life and musical passion. A friendship develops as the two explore the vast melting pot of American music and discover the key to unlocking the boy's own musical potential.
Free! No tickets or reservations required.
