Following in the footsteps of the great American composer George Gershwin, the spectacular soloist Paul Merkelo (Principal trumpet with the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal) and the dazzling Montreal-based pianist and arranger Matt Herskowitz have imagined a novel concert program exploring Gershwin’s music and inspirations. A captivating journey that artfully blends musical substance, cross-inspiration jamming and sheer virtuosity, creating a musical world of its own in which the spirit of Gershwin passes by.
