Rhapsody in Blue

Mendel Center

The Mendel Center 1100 Yore Ave, Benton Harbor, MI, United States

Meet some of music's boundary pushers and barrier breakers with a featured side-by-side performance with the next generation of musicians, the Lake Michigan Youth Orchestra. Relish a gem from female composer Fernande Decruck. The sounds of gospel, blues, and jazz meet the orchestral stage with Duke Ellington's "Black, Brown, and Beige," his musical illustration of African American history. Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue" concludes the SMSO's Mainstage season with the raucous and joyous energy of city life.
