The music of George Gershwin is a collection of American treasures. This energetic, jazzy tune was written in 1926 for a musical entitled “Oh, Kay.” This arrangement is complete with syncopation, hand claps, a key change, and a group descant. It drives from the first note to the last, and may be used as a concert opener or closer. It creates energy for a concert evening, or makes certain the audience is tapping their toes all the way home. Enjoy!
