About the performance

In 2018 Leonard Bernstein would have turned 100, George Gershwin 120: These anniversaries may be an occasion for the BigBand, but they are not the only reason to take care of their music. This concert is primarily a tribute to two composers who have integrated elements of jazz into symphonic music and musical theatre with their very own means. Experience excerpts from WEST SIDE STORY and PORGY AND BESS during this concert.

The BigBand of the Deutsche Oper Berlin and Katharine Mehrling will perform. Also in the group are singers of our ensemble, who have a great passion for this kind of genre-spanning music.
