By now you’re probably aware that the Sacramento Philharmonic Orchestra and the Sacramento Opera have joined forces to become Two in Tune, a performance group featuring the masterful music and opera singing that you’ve come to expect from both organizations. Lend an ear to their first tandem performance at “Here to Stay: The Gershwin Experience” on Saturday, Oct. 19 at 2 and 8 p.m. at the Community Center Theater.
This multimedia concert will feature the song stylings of soprano Sylvia McNair, the kinetic conducting of Maestro Michael Morgan (in tie and tails, no less), rare Gershwin family archival material and, of course, the iconic music of George and Ira Gershwin, including “I Got Rhythm” and “Rhapsody in Blue.”
For tickets and more information, call (916) 808-5181 or visit www.2intune.org. The Community Center Theater is located at 1301 L St., Sacramento.
