Memories of Gershwin

Audio will be available later today.

The legendary Kitty Carlisle Hart opens this segment with personal memories of George Gershwin. Hart says she could have been Mrs. Gershwin, if she'd wanted. Then, we'll hear highlights from Gershwin's Porgy and Bess. Robert Spano conducts the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, the Glee Clubs from Morehouse and Spelman Colleges, soprano Indra Thomas, tenor Michael Forest and bassist Kevin Deas.
