Gershwin & Guests - A Voice and Piano Recital

  • Mason United Methodist Church 2710 N Madison St Tacoma, WA (map)

Join Mason Church's Music Director Collin Whitfield and soprano Erin Whitfield for their farewell concert before they move to Michigan. The program will be shaped around the music of one of their favorite songwriters and composers: George Gershwin. 
Not only did George and his brother Ira pen some of America's most memorable songs, but George also contributed a significant body of work to the concert repertoire. He achieved a blend of jazz and classical styles that was unprecedented and remains unsurpassed to this day. Collin will perform the greatest of those achievements by Gershwin, "Rhapsody in Blue." 
The program will also include some music by other treasured American songwriters. The concert is free of charge and the estimated duration is one hour. Donations are appreciated and will go to support the church music program.
Join us after at Peaks & Pints (21+), a short walk from the church, for a casual "last hurrah" as well. :)
