Gershwin’s Magic Key is the first-ever educationally-entertaining theatrical symphony concert exposing children and their parents to the extraordinary life and musical masterpieces of one of the greatest American composers of all time!
Classical Kids LIVE! presents this fully directed and produced theatrical production with full symphony orchestra and includes a featured pianist, 2 professional actors and an onsite director. The production also includes full score and all musician parts, period costumes, props, lighting & sound coordination.
The music is magically woven into the drama as two actors share their anecdotes and observations based on true incidents from the composer’s life. Presenting history, drama, music and fun, this engaging concert is an ideal addition to any children’s education program or family concert series. The performance is approximately 50 minutes in length and is recommended for audiences age six and up.
Endorsed by the Gershwin Family Interests and supported by the National Endowment for the Arts, Gershwin’s Magic Key triumphantly premiered with the National Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in 2015, and has been delighting audiences around the world ever since.
