About This Program

Approximate length 1:07

American composer and singer-songwriter Gabriel Kahane performs selections from his own recent albums and the Great American Songbook — a collection regarded as some of the most influential American popular songs and jazz standards. He will conduct his piano concerto, written for his father Jeffrey Kahane, which he describes as “an aural family scrapbook, exploring, in its three movements, a series of inheritances.” Distinguished pianist and conductor Jeffrey Kahane then plays a defining, all-American favorite — George Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue, arranged here for piano and orchestra. This one-of-a-kind father-son program is steeped in American jazz, family and connection.


SPCO concerts are made possible by audience contributions.
