"Rhapsody in Blue, Gershwin's love song to America"

Fairfield University Academic Vice President Orin Grossman

"Rhapsody in Blue, Gershwin's Love Song to America" is the subject of Academic Vice President Orin Grossman's upcoming lecture and concert.

As a music scholar, Grossman answers many of the questions often posed concerning how Gershwin so brilliantly fused the popular music of his day with his own genius and created a new and enduring musical legacy. At Monday's event, he will explain the nature of Gershwin's special achievement and perform the entire Rhapsody.

Grossman possesses a special talent for galvanizing an audience intellectually and emotionally. His greatest asset is to teach through his touch at the keyboard.

This final Fairfield lecture and concert, finds Grossman with plans to resume his music career and share his insights on Gershwin and friends in many more lecture-recitals.
