Then & Now 12/06: Happy Birthday Ira Gershwin!

Ira Gershwin

On this date in music history, the brilliant lyricist Ira Gershwin was born in New York City in 1896.  He’s the guy that brought us the words to S’ Wonderful, and so much more.  And as he said, “tried to capture the way people spoke to each other.” 

And around town today, The Choirs, Guitar Ensemble, and SCF's Bradenton Symphony Orchestra will be performing in a festive concert called,  "The Many Moods of Christmas" at Neel Performing Arts Center on the campus of the State College of Florida tonight at 7.
