Dr. Del Parkinson's live piano performance will focus on George Gershwin's most beloved song hits as well as the ever-popular “Rhapsody in Blue.” The format will combine a live performance of these works with an interactive power point presentation and a discussion of Gershwin’s life, his singular approach to composition, and his enduring popularity. George Gershwin is one of America’s best-loved and most significant composers. His successful infusion of jazz elements into the classical idiom is unique and has earned him worldwide stature. Dr. Del Parkinson is a Professor of Piano at Boise State University and holds a Doctor of Music degree from Indiana University and a Postgraduate Diploma from the Juilliard School.
