Charleston Musical Heritage Productions presents PS 24 - Gershwin & Jazz with an All Star Cast

Sun, May 26 at 2pm

This event has passed.

In this special series finale, we have assembled an all star cast of Charleston entertainers to highlight the City’s rich jazz history and, of course, the timeless music of George Gershwin, who wrote “Porgy and Bess” on Folly Beach in 1919.  Nolan Tecklenburg & Mark Sterbank perform jazz and reflect on its role in our history. Soprano Diamond Tyler and baritone Ramelle Brooks, both of whom have performed “Porgy” on the local stage, will reprise hits from the opera, including the iconic “Summertime”.  The program concludes with a stirring rendition of “Rhapsody in Blue” with Ghadi Shayban and Maida Libkin on the piano.
