In conjunction with the exhibition “Edward Steichen: Portraits,” Cultures in Motion presents a musical narrative highlighting the life of composer and pianist George Gershwin. Celebrate the fourth of July with one of America’s favorite musicians, from his early Tin Pan Alley “piano-pounding” days to the Broadway stage, Hollywood and more.
Featuring David Ylvisaker as Gershwin and scripted and narrated by the Portrait Gallery’s Jewell Robinson, the program includes singers Alvy Powell, Gina Watson Powell, Beverly Cosham and Henry Fiske. The performance takes place in the museum's Nan Tucker McEvoy Auditorium.
The performance is free, but seating is limited. For reservations please call (202) 633-8520 or e-mail [email protected].
