Music, by George!

A George Gershwin Tribute



"Music is a phenomenon that to me has a very marked effect on the emotions. It has the power of moving people to all the various moods. Through the emotions, it can have a cleansing effect on the mind, a disturbing effect, a drowsy effect, an exciting effective like to think of music as an emotional science."

--George Gershwin, 1933
