The Embassy Commemorates George Gershwin’s 120th Birthday

Last September 26, the Embassy organized a concert at American Space Madrid to pay tribute to U.S. musician and composer George Gershwin on his 120th birthday.  The Press Attaché welcomed the audience and highlighted the importance of Gershwin in musical history.  A trio, composed of pianist Carlos Calvo, soprano Aída Rioja and baritone Gerardo Bullón, performed Gershwin works including “Rhapsody in Blue,” “Summertime,” and “’S Wonderful,” among others, before a delighted audience that applauded enthusiastically.
