A thrilling program highlighting the great American Melting Pot of sound!  Tim Schwarz and Dan Weiser, who have performed together for over 30 years and were the 1996 US Artistic Ambassadors of Music, will bring their trademark flair, energy, passion, and virtuosity to this concert that will showcase the influence of a variety of musical idioms—Ragtime, Spirituals, Blues, Jazz, Latin, European—on American music.  They will perform fun Ragtimes by Scott Joplin, a powerful Blues-inspired work by William Grant Still, a passionate Romance by Amy Beach, a fantastic medley from Bernstein’s West Side Story, and the incredible Rhapsody in Blue by George Gershwin, celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2024.

Daniel Weiser returns to Florida on his own this year to explore the tragically short, but incredibly productive life, of American’s greatest composer—George Gershwin.  The son of Russian Jewish immigrants, Gershwin grew up in the rough, chaotic streets of New York and soaked up the melting pot around him to help formulate the new, brash sound of America.  Combining elements of “Jewish” music with the “Blues” and “Ragtime” brought by recent black migrants from the South, Gershwin would help produce the new “Jazz” and “Broadway” sound that made New York City a new center for musical culture.  Gershwin seamlessly moved between the “classical” and “popular” worlds to help reveal the continuum of these seemingly different idioms.  Dr. Weiser will play much of Gershwin’s concert music, including “Rhapsody in Blue,” “An American in Paris,” and his “Preludes.”  He will also perform arrangements of many of his iconic songs, including “The Man I Love,” “I Got Rhythm,” “Love is Here to Stay,” and many more.

Daniel Weiser returns to Florida on his own this year to explore the tragically short, but incredibly productive life, of American’s greatest composer—George Gershwin.  The son of Russian Jewish immigrants, Gershwin grew up in the rough, chaotic streets of New York and soaked up the melting pot around him to help formulate the new, brash sound of America.  Combining elements of “Jewish” music with the “Blues” and “Ragtime” brought by recent black migrants from the South, Gershwin would help produce the new “Jazz” and “Broadway” sound that made New York City a new center for musical culture.  Gershwin seamlessly moved between the “classical” and “popular” worlds to help reveal the continuum of these seemingly different idioms.  Dr. Weiser will play much of Gershwin’s concert music, including “Rhapsody in Blue,” “An American in Paris,” and his “Preludes.”  He will also perform arrangements of many of his iconic songs, including “The Man I Love,” “I Got Rhythm,” “Love is Here to Stay,” and many more.

Daniel Weiser returns to Florida on his own this year to explore the tragically short, but incredibly productive life, of American’s greatest composer—George Gershwin.  The son of Russian Jewish immigrants, Gershwin grew up in the rough, chaotic streets of New York and soaked up the melting pot around him to help formulate the new, brash sound of America.  Combining elements of “Jewish” music with the “Blues” and “Ragtime” brought by recent black migrants from the South, Gershwin would help produce the new “Jazz” and “Broadway” sound that made New York City a new center for musical culture.  Gershwin seamlessly moved between the “classical” and “popular” worlds to help reveal the continuum of these seemingly different idioms.  Dr. Weiser will play much of Gershwin’s concert music, including “Rhapsody in Blue,” “An American in Paris,” and his “Preludes.”  He will also perform arrangements of many of his iconic songs, including “The Man I Love,” “I Got Rhythm,” “Love is Here to Stay,” and many more.

Daniel Weiser returns to Florida on his own this year to explore the tragically short, but incredibly productive life, of American’s greatest composer—George Gershwin.  The son of Russian Jewish immigrants, Gershwin grew up in the rough, chaotic streets of New York and soaked up the melting pot around him to help formulate the new, brash sound of America.  Combining elements of “Jewish” music with the “Blues” and “Ragtime” brought by recent black migrants from the South, Gershwin would help produce the new “Jazz” and “Broadway” sound that made New York City a new center for musical culture.  Gershwin seamlessly moved between the “classical” and “popular” worlds to help reveal the continuum of these seemingly different idioms.  Dr. Weiser will play much of Gershwin’s concert music, including “Rhapsody in Blue,” “An American in Paris,” and his “Preludes.”  He will also perform arrangements of many of his iconic songs, including “The Man I Love,” “I Got Rhythm,” “Love is Here to Stay,” and many more.

Daniel Weiser returns to Florida on his own this year to explore the tragically short, but incredibly productive life, of American’s greatest composer—George Gershwin.  The son of Russian Jewish immigrants, Gershwin grew up in the rough, chaotic streets of New York and soaked up the melting pot around him to help formulate the new, brash sound of America.  Combining elements of “Jewish” music with the “Blues” and “Ragtime” brought by recent black migrants from the South, Gershwin would help produce the new “Jazz” and “Broadway” sound that made New York City a new center for musical culture.  Gershwin seamlessly moved between the “classical” and “popular” worlds to help reveal the continuum of these seemingly different idioms.  Dr. Weiser will play much of Gershwin’s concert music, including “Rhapsody in Blue,” “An American in Paris,” and his “Preludes.”  He will also perform arrangements of many of his iconic songs, including “The Man I Love,” “I Got Rhythm,” “Love is Here to Stay,” and many more.

Daniel Weiser returns to Florida on his own this year to explore the tragically short, but incredibly productive life, of American’s greatest composer—George Gershwin.  The son of Russian Jewish immigrants, Gershwin grew up in the rough, chaotic streets of New York and soaked up the melting pot around him to help formulate the new, brash sound of America.  Combining elements of “Jewish” music with the “Blues” and “Ragtime” brought by recent black migrants from the South, Gershwin would help produce the new “Jazz” and “Broadway” sound that made New York City a new center for musical culture.  Gershwin seamlessly moved between the “classical” and “popular” worlds to help reveal the continuum of these seemingly different idioms.  Dr. Weiser will play much of Gershwin’s concert music, including “Rhapsody in Blue,” “An American in Paris,” and his “Preludes.”  He will also perform arrangements of many of his iconic songs, including “The Man I Love,” “I Got Rhythm,” “Love is Here to Stay,” and many more.

Daniel Weiser returns to Florida on his own this year to explore the tragically short, but incredibly productive life, of American’s greatest composer—George Gershwin.  The son of Russian Jewish immigrants, Gershwin grew up in the rough, chaotic streets of New York and soaked up the melting pot around him to help formulate the new, brash sound of America.  Combining elements of “Jewish” music with the “Blues” and “Ragtime” brought by recent black migrants from the South, Gershwin would help produce the new “Jazz” and “Broadway” sound that made New York City a new center for musical culture.  Gershwin seamlessly moved between the “classical” and “popular” worlds to help reveal the continuum of these seemingly different idioms.  Dr. Weiser will play much of Gershwin’s concert music, including “Rhapsody in Blue,” “An American in Paris,” and his “Preludes.”  He will also perform arrangements of many of his iconic songs, including “The Man I Love,” “I Got Rhythm,” “Love is Here to Stay,” and many more.

Daniel Weiser returns to Florida on his own this year to explore the tragically short, but incredibly productive life, of American’s greatest composer—George Gershwin.  The son of Russian Jewish immigrants, Gershwin grew up in the rough, chaotic streets of New York and soaked up the melting pot around him to help formulate the new, brash sound of America.  Combining elements of “Jewish” music with the “Blues” and “Ragtime” brought by recent black migrants from the South, Gershwin would help produce the new “Jazz” and “Broadway” sound that made New York City a new center for musical culture.  Gershwin seamlessly moved between the “classical” and “popular” worlds to help reveal the continuum of these seemingly different idioms.  Dr. Weiser will play much of Gershwin’s concert music, including “Rhapsody in Blue,” “An American in Paris,” and his “Preludes.”  He will also perform arrangements of many of his iconic songs, including “The Man I Love,” “I Got Rhythm,” “Love is Here to Stay,” and many more.

Daniel Weiser returns to Florida on his own this year to explore the tragically short, but incredibly productive life, of American’s greatest composer—George Gershwin.  The son of Russian Jewish immigrants, Gershwin grew up in the rough, chaotic streets of New York and soaked up the melting pot around him to help formulate the new, brash sound of America.  Combining elements of “Jewish” music with the “Blues” and “Ragtime” brought by recent black migrants from the South, Gershwin would help produce the new “Jazz” and “Broadway” sound that made New York City a new center for musical culture.  Gershwin seamlessly moved between the “classical” and “popular” worlds to help reveal the continuum of these seemingly different idioms.  Dr. Weiser will play much of Gershwin’s concert music, including “Rhapsody in Blue,” “An American in Paris,” and his “Preludes.”  He will also perform arrangements of many of his iconic songs, including “The Man I Love,” “I Got Rhythm,” “Love is Here to Stay,” and many more.

Daniel Weiser returns to Florida on his own this year to explore the tragically short, but incredibly productive life, of American’s greatest composer—George Gershwin.  The son of Russian Jewish immigrants, Gershwin grew up in the rough, chaotic streets of New York and soaked up the melting pot around him to help formulate the new, brash sound of America.  Combining elements of “Jewish” music with the “Blues” and “Ragtime” brought by recent black migrants from the South, Gershwin would help produce the new “Jazz” and “Broadway” sound that made New York City a new center for musical culture.  Gershwin seamlessly moved between the “classical” and “popular” worlds to help reveal the continuum of these seemingly different idioms.  Dr. Weiser will play much of Gershwin’s concert music, including “Rhapsody in Blue,” “An American in Paris,” and his “Preludes.”  He will also perform arrangements of many of his iconic songs, including “The Man I Love,” “I Got Rhythm,” “Love is Here to Stay,” and many more.

Daniel Weiser returns to Florida on his own this year to explore the tragically short, but incredibly productive life, of American’s greatest composer—George Gershwin.  The son of Russian Jewish immigrants, Gershwin grew up in the rough, chaotic streets of New York and soaked up the melting pot around him to help formulate the new, brash sound of America.  Combining elements of “Jewish” music with the “Blues” and “Ragtime” brought by recent black migrants from the South, Gershwin would help produce the new “Jazz” and “Broadway” sound that made New York City a new center for musical culture.  Gershwin seamlessly moved between the “classical” and “popular” worlds to help reveal the continuum of these seemingly different idioms.  Dr. Weiser will play much of Gershwin’s concert music, including “Rhapsody in Blue,” “An American in Paris,” and his “Preludes.”  He will also perform arrangements of many of his iconic songs, including “The Man I Love,” “I Got Rhythm,” “Love is Here to Stay,” and many more.

Daniel Weiser returns to Florida on his own this year to explore the tragically short, but incredibly productive life, of American’s greatest composer—George Gershwin.  The son of Russian Jewish immigrants, Gershwin grew up in the rough, chaotic streets of New York and soaked up the melting pot around him to help formulate the new, brash sound of America.  Combining elements of “Jewish” music with the “Blues” and “Ragtime” brought by recent black migrants from the South, Gershwin would help produce the new “Jazz” and “Broadway” sound that made New York City a new center for musical culture.  Gershwin seamlessly moved between the “classical” and “popular” worlds to help reveal the continuum of these seemingly different idioms.  Dr. Weiser will play much of Gershwin’s concert music, including “Rhapsody in Blue,” “An American in Paris,” and his “Preludes.”  He will also perform arrangements of many of his iconic songs, including “The Man I Love,” “I Got Rhythm,” “Love is Here to Stay,” and many more.

Daniel Weiser returns to Florida on his own this year to explore the tragically short, but incredibly productive life, of American’s greatest composer—George Gershwin.  The son of Russian Jewish immigrants, Gershwin grew up in the rough, chaotic streets of New York and soaked up the melting pot around him to help formulate the new, brash sound of America.  Combining elements of “Jewish” music with the “Blues” and “Ragtime” brought by recent black migrants from the South, Gershwin would help produce the new “Jazz” and “Broadway” sound that made New York City a new center for musical culture.  Gershwin seamlessly moved between the “classical” and “popular” worlds to help reveal the continuum of these seemingly different idioms.  Dr. Weiser will play much of Gershwin’s concert music, including “Rhapsody in Blue,” “An American in Paris,” and his “Preludes.”  He will also perform arrangements of many of his iconic songs, including “The Man I Love,” “I Got Rhythm,” “Love is Here to Stay,” and many more.

Daniel Weiser returns to Florida on his own this year to explore the tragically short, but incredibly productive life, of American’s greatest composer—George Gershwin.  The son of Russian Jewish immigrants, Gershwin grew up in the rough, chaotic streets of New York and soaked up the melting pot around him to help formulate the new, brash sound of America.  Combining elements of “Jewish” music with the “Blues” and “Ragtime” brought by recent black migrants from the South, Gershwin would help produce the new “Jazz” and “Broadway” sound that made New York City a new center for musical culture.  Gershwin seamlessly moved between the “classical” and “popular” worlds to help reveal the continuum of these seemingly different idioms.  Dr. Weiser will play much of Gershwin’s concert music, including “Rhapsody in Blue,” “An American in Paris,” and his “Preludes.”  He will also perform arrangements of many of his iconic songs, including “The Man I Love,” “I Got Rhythm,” “Love is Here to Stay,” and many more.

Daniel Weiser returns to Florida on his own this year to explore the tragically short, but incredibly productive life, of American’s greatest composer—George Gershwin.  The son of Russian Jewish immigrants, Gershwin grew up in the rough, chaotic streets of New York and soaked up the melting pot around him to help formulate the new, brash sound of America.  Combining elements of “Jewish” music with the “Blues” and “Ragtime” brought by recent black migrants from the South, Gershwin would help produce the new “Jazz” and “Broadway” sound that made New York City a new center for musical culture.  Gershwin seamlessly moved between the “classical” and “popular” worlds to help reveal the continuum of these seemingly different idioms.  Dr. Weiser will play much of Gershwin’s concert music, including “Rhapsody in Blue,” “An American in Paris,” and his “Preludes.”  He will also perform arrangements of many of his iconic songs, including “The Man I Love,” “I Got Rhythm,” “Love is Here to Stay,” and many more.

Daniel Weiser returns to Florida on his own this year to explore the tragically short, but incredibly productive life, of American’s greatest composer—George Gershwin.  The son of Russian Jewish immigrants, Gershwin grew up in the rough, chaotic streets of New York and soaked up the melting pot around him to help formulate the new, brash sound of America.  Combining elements of “Jewish” music with the “Blues” and “Ragtime” brought by recent black migrants from the South, Gershwin would help produce the new “Jazz” and “Broadway” sound that made New York City a new center for musical culture.  Gershwin seamlessly moved between the “classical” and “popular” worlds to help reveal the continuum of these seemingly different idioms.  Dr. Weiser will play much of Gershwin’s concert music, including “Rhapsody in Blue,” “An American in Paris,” and his “Preludes.”  He will also perform arrangements of many of his iconic songs, including “The Man I Love,” “I Got Rhythm,” “Love is Here to Stay,” and many more.

Daniel Weiser returns to Florida on his own this year to explore the tragically short, but incredibly productive life, of American’s greatest composer—George Gershwin.  The son of Russian Jewish immigrants, Gershwin grew up in the rough, chaotic streets of New York and soaked up the melting pot around him to help formulate the new, brash sound of America.  Combining elements of “Jewish” music with the “Blues” and “Ragtime” brought by recent black migrants from the South, Gershwin would help produce the new “Jazz” and “Broadway” sound that made New York City a new center for musical culture.  Gershwin seamlessly moved between the “classical” and “popular” worlds to help reveal the continuum of these seemingly different idioms.  Dr. Weiser will play much of Gershwin’s concert music, including “Rhapsody in Blue,” “An American in Paris,” and his “Preludes.”  He will also perform arrangements of many of his iconic songs, including “The Man I Love,” “I Got Rhythm,” “Love is Here to Stay,” and many more.

Daniel Weiser returns to Florida on his own this year to explore the tragically short, but incredibly productive life, of American’s greatest composer—George Gershwin.  The son of Russian Jewish immigrants, Gershwin grew up in the rough, chaotic streets of New York and soaked up the melting pot around him to help formulate the new, brash sound of America.  Combining elements of “Jewish” music with the “Blues” and “Ragtime” brought by recent black migrants from the South, Gershwin would help produce the new “Jazz” and “Broadway” sound that made New York City a new center for musical culture.  Gershwin seamlessly moved between the “classical” and “popular” worlds to help reveal the continuum of these seemingly different idioms.  Dr. Weiser will play much of Gershwin’s concert music, including “Rhapsody in Blue,” “An American in Paris,” and his “Preludes.”  He will also perform arrangements of many of his iconic songs, including “The Man I Love,” “I Got Rhythm,” “Love is Here to Stay,” and many more.
