It's Patreon Sponsor week this Thanksgiving on Sticky Notes! Thanks to Walter and his generous donation, and in honor of Thanksgiving, today's show will explore the life of the great American composer George Gershwin. We'll talk about his life growing up in Lower East Side Tenements, his discovery of the piano, and of course, his music, straddling the two spheres of Jazz and Classical music. We'll also take a look at three of his most famous pieces, Rhapsody in Blue, Porgy and Bess, and his Concerto in F. If you would like to hear about a composer or piece of your choice, just head over to Patreon.com/stickynotespodcast. Thanks so much for all of your support!
