Songs from Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess get the symphonic treatment

Since its debut in 1935, Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess has captivated audiences with its distinctly American harmonies and poignant story of a man transformed by improbable and unexpected love. In Robert Russell Bennett’s arrangement of Porgy and Bess: A Concert of Songs, we find a piece distilled to its most joyous and poignant moments, its highest highs and lowest lows. Conductor John Morris Russell leads the combined forces of the National Orchestral Institute and the Heritage Signature Chorale. Current Filene Artist baritone Joshua Conyers is joined by Wolf Trap Opera Alumna Alyson Cambridge (’04).
