MICHAEL FEINSTEIN: THE GERSHWINS AND ME: A PERSONAL HISTORY Philadelphia Jewish Music Festival

May 6, 2013 7:30 PM-9:30 PM

“The Ambassador of the Great American Songbook,” Michael Feinstein is a multi-platinum-selling, Emmy and Grammy Award-nominated entertainer dedicated to restoring music from the golden age of American song. He educates audiences about the culture-defining work of the Gershwins, Cole Porter, Jimmy Van Heusen, Johnny Mercer, and their peers through his books, radio broadcasts, and the Michael Feinstein Great American Songbook Initiative, an archive and arts center in Carmel, Indiana. His more than 200 shows a year have included performances at Carnegie Hall, Sydney Opera House, the White House, and Buckingham Palace. In his new book The Gershwins and Me, Feinstein illuminates the lives and careers of Ira and George Gershwin in telling the stories behind a dozen of their classic songs.
