The astounding musical legacy of George and Ira Gershwin can hardly be summed up in a news article. But, suffice it to say that Here To Stay: The Gershwin Experience, playing at the Van Wezel on February 10, 2013, paints a beautifully deep and intriguing picture of the dynamic duo, and immerses the viewer in a concert environment that has not been replicated since the performance of the original orchestration.
