In a program titled An American in Paris, conductor Matthew Oberstein celebrates two iconic American composers with roots in France: George Gershwin and Cole Porter. Multi award-winning vocalist and Juilliard grad, Jennifer Sheehan performs a selection of Porter songs. The concert opens and closes with Gershwin (Girl Crazy Overture and An American in Paris suite). And we could not be in Paris without playing some Ravel! (Bolero, Pavane, La Valse)
