IS102 Legendary Performers

Fridays, August 3 to August 24

Some performers are simply born great. It is their combination of talent and charisma which makes them legendary. Neil Ritchie examines what makes a performer great and looks at how, besides talent, their early lives, family, education, career choices, mentoring, integrity, musicality, direction, timing, and, of course, luck impacted their careers. Spend some time with each of them enjoying their music and learning about their often complicated personal lives.

Aug. 3 Daniel Barenboim: Conductor, pianist, provocateur.

Aug. 10 Ira Gershwin: George’s lyricist and brother. Best friends and opposites in every way.

Aug. 17 Marilyn Horne:  An unpretentious American diva with a glorious mezzo soprano voice.

Aug. 24 Tony Bennett:  93 and still going strong, singing the timeless standard classics.

Instructor: Neil Ritchie
