In this special series finale, we have assembled an all star cast of Charleston entertainers to highlight the City’s rich jazz history and, of course, the timeless music of George Gershwin, who wrote “Porgy and Bess” on Folly Beach in the summer of 1934. Mayor John Tecklenburg & Lonnie Hamilton III perform jazz and reflect on its role in our history. Soprano Shanelle Wood and baritone Brandon Allen, both of whom have performed “Porgy” on the local stage, will reprise hits from the opera, including the iconic “Summertime”. The program concludes with a stirring rendition of “Rhapsody in Blue” with Ghadi Shayban and Maida Libkin on the piano.
