Northern California Premiere

The inspiring story of “America’s Composer” Irving Berlin takes center stage in this tour-de-force performance by virtuoso pianist Hershey Felder, internationally acclaimed for bringing to life such composers as Gershwin, Beethoven, Chopin, and Bernstein. Capturing the rhythms of the Lower East Side, and eventually enchanting the entire world, Berlin epitomizes the American Dream. From "Blue Skies" to “White Christmas,” this remarkable evening with Irving is an unforgettable journey in song.  

“A remarkable portrait…richly entertaining.”
