GERSHWIN Porgy and Bess  BSO Podcast

Back by popular demand, Marin Alsop leads the BSO and the Morgan State University Choir, as well as vocal soloists, in a semi-staged production of Porgy and Bess. Featuring such well-known hits as “Summertime” and “It Ain’t Necessarily So,” Gershwin’s jazzy folk opera endures as an American classic since its 1935 premiere.
