Presented By: University of Michigan Retirees Association (UMRA)

UMRA - U-M Retirees Association Presents: Preserving the Legacy of Song: The University of Michigan’s Gershwin Initiative

Mark Clague, Associate Dean for Collaborations and Partnerships, Professor of Music, Director of U-M Gershwin Initiative and Co- Editor-in-Chief MUSA

The University of Michigan’s Gershwin Initiative is an ongoing scholarly examination of the Gershwins’ music. U-M scholars, in collaboration with peers from across the nation and globe, document and analyze—note-by-note and word-by-word—the treasure trove of works featuring music by George Gershwin and lyrics by Ira Gershwin. Works include Porgy and Bess, often considered America’s greatest opera, as well as the celebrated instrumental works by George Gershwin. Professor Clague will share the current findings from these analyses and discuss how the Initiative is contributing to student education and the international music community.
