“George Gershwin is at work on a jazz concerto,” a newspaper article from January 3, 1924 reported. This was news to Gershwin. The article stated that it would be performed by Paul Whiteman and his Palais Royal Band on February 12, so Gershwin got to work.

The result is one of the most iconic American melodies in modern history, a perfect infusion of jazz and European big band compositions. His masterpiece, Rhapsody in Blue, will be performed by Solo Piano and Jazz Band, with a pre-concert lecture one hour prior to the performance.
