Santa Monica College To Present ‘The Glory of Gershwin’ On October 14:

Santa Monica College will present “The Glory of Gershwin,” a fascinating audiovisual portrait of the charismatic composer’s life and music, at 7:30 p.m. Friday, Oct. 14.

It will be held at The Broad Stage, SMC Performing Arts Center, Santa Monica Boulevard at 11th Street.

The special evening features rare photos, vintage film, video and music clips, live piano and a sing-along to one of Gershwin’s memorable hits.

Bringing it alive is Rodney Greenberg, Gershwin biographer and pianist who has produced and directed more than 300 television music programs, including Emmy-winning telecasts for NBC.

Combining his broadcasting experience with a passion for Gershwin, he presents a one-of-a-kind event that includes the role of Gershwin’s lyric-writing brother Ira. Greenberg’s much-praised book on Gershwin, titled simply “George Gerswhin,” will be available in the foyer.

“The Glory of Gershwin” is sponsored by the SMC Associates, a private organization that funds speakers and special programs on campus, and the Media Policy Center, an organization that uses media to inform, challenge and engage a responsive citizenry.

Tickets range from $20 (for students with current ID) to $45, and can be purchased by calling 310.434.3005 or online at www.smc.edu/eventsinfo.
