This two-hour concert will feature the glorious music of Jerome Kern. Widely considered the Father of the American Songbook, Kern was a bridge between the European operetta style of song into a distinctly American style of music. He was mentor and inspiration for people like George Gershwin, Harold Arlen, Irving Berlin and countless others. Known for lyric lines and lush harmonies, Kern’s music has not only survived but thrived throughout the years, inspiring musicians and vocalists of all styles even today. There’s just no one like him.
