Plainfield Symphony presents "The Gershwin Songbook" Saturday night

A caricature of Gershwin by famed New Yorker
artist Al Hirschfeld (1946).

CORRECTION: Note parking correction, there is no parking in the First Place lot.

The Plainfield
Symphony, under Music Director Charles Prince, presents "The Gershwin Songbook" Saturday night at Crescent Avenue Presbyterian Church.

George Gershwin was an enormously productive American composer who wrote everything from classical compositions (Rhapsody in Blue) to opera (Porgy and Bess), from solo piano works (Fascinating Rhythm) to popular songs (Oh, lady be good; Someone to watch over me; Shall we dance; and many more).

Three well-known artists will join the PSO in offering up a delicious selection of Gershwin's ever-popular numbers.

Pianist Richard Glazier will present some of Gershwin's piano works, and singers Rebecca Faulkenberry (Groundhog Day, the musical) and Ron Raines (Showboat, Chicago) will present fabled Gershwin songs.

Because a large crowd is expected, special parking arrangements have been made. There is no parking in the church lot on First Place owing to construction. Parking is available at Swain Galleries on Watchung Avenue and the parking lots at the Salvation Army (across from Crescent Church) and City Hall (6th and Watchung).

The concert starts at 7:00 PM sharp. Please be sure to leave yourself time to park and walk to the church.

Tickets are available at the door. $65/reserved, $45/general, $30/seniors and students.

Crescent Avenue Presbyterian Church is at Watchung Avenue and East 7th Street. Parking as noted above.
