Here to Stay: The Gershwin Experience launches MusicFest Vancouver with the Canadian premiere of a multimedia concert event at the historic Orpheum Theatre that celebrates one of the greatest teams of collaborators in the history of American music.
Our guide for this glittering evening is the renowned pianist and Gershwin interpreter Kevin Cole. The brilliant singer Sylvia McNair, vocalist/tap sensation Ryan VanDenBoom, and our own Grammy Award-winning Vancouver Symphony Orchestra led by guest conductor Leslie Dala, join together for this unique and entertaining insight into the legendary duo, George and Ira Gershwin.
Gershwin family photos, rare video clips, and elegant, visual elements provide a distinctive and unique experience, plus there will be an unforgettable offering of the Gershwin brothers’ best. Performances include The Man I Love, I Got Rhythm, Strike Up the Band, Summertime, ’S Wonderful and many more.
The music and lyrics for “Here To Stay: The Gershwin Experience” were provided through special arrangement with members of the George Gershwin Family and the Ira and Leonore Gershwin Trusts.
Produced by Todd Gershwin and Daniel Chilewich of Premiere Media and Kevin Cole.
