Rhapsodising in Blue - the music of Gershwin

#FindYour Funny, Story, Talent

Kate Daniels has a beautiful voice perfectly suited to the elegance of Gershwin, as well as an enchanting way of dropping nuggets of biographical detail. Nils Solberg, as well as being a brilliant guitarist and a specialist in music of the era, also has a fine voice. Well known to Brighton audiences, Mike Hatchard sings, plays violin and piano. His acuity on the latter will be particularly on display as he plays Gershwin's most celebrated composition Rhapsody in Blue on the superb Steinway at the Unitarian Church.

Four accomplished musicians all sharing a wonderful atmosphere of bonhomie - nearly all the famous songs (Summertime, a Foggy Day, The Man I Love etc.) are covered but this show also explores many of Gershwin's not so well known works, including the intriguingly long-titled 'When You Want 'Em, You Can't Get 'Em, When You've Got 'Em, You Don't Want 'Em,' (penned by Gershwin at seventeen) and lost gems you're not so likely to have heard of such as 'Some Wonderful Sort of Someone.'
