The concerts, based on Alexis Gershwin's CD "Gershwin Sings Gershwin," will be presented Feb. 14 at the Cerritos Performing Arts Center and Feb. 21 at the Thousand Oaks Performing Arts Center. Both shows will begin at 3 PM. The concerts will also feature the Gershwin Singers and the Harry James Tribute Orchestra.
Expect all-new arrangements of such Gershwin tunes as "A Foggy Day," "The Man That Got Away," "They Can't Take That Away From Me," "Embraceable You," "I Can't Get Started," "I've Got a Crush On You" and "Our Love Is Here To Stay."
"This is the culmination of my work as a vocalist, really," Alexis Gershwin said in a statement. "To do an entire show dedicated to my uncles is something I've always dreamed of, but never felt quite ready to try. Now I'm doing it and it is so exciting to see the show take shape."
