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.

Formerly known as the Upper Valley Duo, they always bring incredible passion, virtuosity, and excitement to all their programs.  They will perform four different programs across the state from Pompano Beach to St. Petersburg to Naples.   Scroll down to the bottom to see all the dates and venues and to buy tickets.

 

PROGRAM I:  JAZZICAL –A thrilling crossover program exploring the connections between classical and jazz music through the works of Claude Bolling, William Grant Still, George Gershwin, and Leonard Bernstein.  This program features Bolling’s incredible Suite for Violin and Jazz Piano written for Pinchas Zukerman plus fantastic arrangements of songs from Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess and Bernstein’s West Side Story.

PROGRAM II:  BROADWAY VIOLIN–Fantastic arrangements of your favorite Broadway songs by Andrew Lloyd Webber, Harold Arlen, Jerome Kern, and more along with virtuosic renditions of Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue and Bernstein’s West Side Story.  You will not want to miss it!

PROGRAM III:  JEWISH JAZZ–Another program exploring the fantastic connections between Jewish music and the beginnings of American Jazz featuring exciting Klezmer music plus Gershwin, Bernstein, and more.

Hum and tap along to the incredible music of Cole Porter as pianist Daniel Weiser and violinist Tim Schwarz perform some wonderful arrangements of his fabulous songs, including hits such as “Begin the Beguine,” “I Get a Kick out of You,” “Just One of those Things,” “Night and Day” and so many more!   Dr. Weiser will intersperse some fun stories and history about the fascinating life of Cole Porter (a fellow Harvard Law School dropout!)  who helped usher in the Great American Songbook of the early 20th century.

The evening begins with wonderful cocktails in the beautiful Collier’s Reserve Country Club.  After the first half of the concert, a full and delicious dinner will be served, followed by a rousing second half to the program.  This is always a magical evening with great music, food, drinks, and people.  Thank you to Rod and Pat Vitty for making this evening possible!

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.

PROGRAM II:  BROADWAY VIOLIN–Fantastic arrangements of your favorite Broadway songs by Andrew Lloyd Webber, Harold Arlen, Jerome Kern, and more along with virtuosic renditions of Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue and Bernstein’s West Side Story.  You will not want to miss it!

The evening begins with wonderful cocktails in the beautiful Collier’s Reserve Country Club.  After the first half of the concert, a full and delicious dinner will be served, followed by a rousing second half to the program.  This is always a magical evening with great music, food, drinks, and people.  Thank you to Rod and Pat Vitty for making this evening possible!

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.

Formerly known as the Upper Valley Duo, they always bring incredible passion, virtuosity, and excitement to all their programs.  They will perform four different programs across the state from Pompano Beach to St. Petersburg to Naples.   Scroll down to the bottom to see all the dates and venues and to buy tickets.

 

PROGRAM I:  JAZZICAL –A thrilling crossover program exploring the connections between classical and jazz music through the works of Claude Bolling, William Grant Still, George Gershwin, and Leonard Bernstein.  This program features Bolling’s incredible Suite for Violin and Jazz Piano written for Pinchas Zukerman plus fantastic arrangements of songs from Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess and Bernstein’s West Side Story.

PROGRAM II:  BROADWAY VIOLIN–Fantastic arrangements of your favorite Broadway songs by Andrew Lloyd Webber, Harold Arlen, Jerome Kern, and more along with virtuosic renditions of Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue and Bernstein’s West Side Story.  You will not want to miss it!

PROGRAM III:  JEWISH JAZZ–Another program exploring the fantastic connections between Jewish music and the beginnings of American Jazz featuring exciting Klezmer music plus Gershwin, Bernstein, and more.

Hum and tap along to the incredible music of Cole Porter as pianist Daniel Weiser and violinist Tim Schwarz perform some wonderful arrangements of his fabulous songs, including hits such as “Begin the Beguine,” “I Get a Kick out of You,” “Just One of those Things,” “Night and Day” and so many more!   Dr. Weiser will intersperse some fun stories and history about the fascinating life of Cole Porter (a fellow Harvard Law School dropout!)  who helped usher in the Great American Songbook of the early 20th century.

The evening begins with wonderful cocktails in the beautiful Collier’s Reserve Country Club.  After the first half of the concert, a full and delicious dinner will be served, followed by a rousing second half to the program.  This is always a magical evening with great music, food, drinks, and people.  Thank you to Rod and Pat Vitty for making this evening possible!

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.

PROGRAM II:  BROADWAY VIOLIN–Fantastic arrangements of your favorite Broadway songs by Andrew Lloyd Webber, Harold Arlen, Jerome Kern, and more along with virtuosic renditions of Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue and Bernstein’s West Side Story.  You will not want to miss it!

The evening begins with wonderful cocktails in the beautiful Collier’s Reserve Country Club.  After the first half of the concert, a full and delicious dinner will be served, followed by a rousing second half to the program.  This is always a magical evening with great music, food, drinks, and people.  Thank you to Rod and Pat Vitty for making this evening possible!

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.

Formerly known as the Upper Valley Duo, they always bring incredible passion, virtuosity, and excitement to all their programs.  They will perform four different programs across the state from Pompano Beach to St. Petersburg to Naples.   Scroll down to the bottom to see all the dates and venues and to buy tickets.

 

PROGRAM I:  JAZZICAL –A thrilling crossover program exploring the connections between classical and jazz music through the works of Claude Bolling, William Grant Still, George Gershwin, and Leonard Bernstein.  This program features Bolling’s incredible Suite for Violin and Jazz Piano written for Pinchas Zukerman plus fantastic arrangements of songs from Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess and Bernstein’s West Side Story.

PROGRAM II:  BROADWAY VIOLIN–Fantastic arrangements of your favorite Broadway songs by Andrew Lloyd Webber, Harold Arlen, Jerome Kern, and more along with virtuosic renditions of Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue and Bernstein’s West Side Story.  You will not want to miss it!

PROGRAM III:  JEWISH JAZZ–Another program exploring the fantastic connections between Jewish music and the beginnings of American Jazz featuring exciting Klezmer music plus Gershwin, Bernstein, and more.

Hum and tap along to the incredible music of Cole Porter as pianist Daniel Weiser and violinist Tim Schwarz perform some wonderful arrangements of his fabulous songs, including hits such as “Begin the Beguine,” “I Get a Kick out of You,” “Just One of those Things,” “Night and Day” and so many more!   Dr. Weiser will intersperse some fun stories and history about the fascinating life of Cole Porter (a fellow Harvard Law School dropout!)  who helped usher in the Great American Songbook of the early 20th century.

The evening begins with wonderful cocktails in the beautiful Collier’s Reserve Country Club.  After the first half of the concert, a full and delicious dinner will be served, followed by a rousing second half to the program.  This is always a magical evening with great music, food, drinks, and people.  Thank you to Rod and Pat Vitty for making this evening possible!

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.
