Congratulations to the actors, producers, and those who brought Ira and George’s music to the stage. Thank you for keeping their artistry alive!

Note that the Gershwin Critical Edition’s new score and parts for the original orchestral work An American in Paris is currently underway. We expect to test run a draft version with the Reno Philharmonic Orchestra in February 2016, conducted by Gershwin Edition Advisory Board member and U-Michigan alumna Laura Jackson.
