First Wednesdays brings pianist Michael Arnowitt to Trinity Church

Wednesday, April 6 at 7 p.m. — RUTLAND — Pianist Michael Arnowitt will perform and discuss the work of American composer George Gershwin at Rutland’s Trinity Episcopal Church on April 6 at 7 p.m. The event, “An Evening of George Gershwin,” is part of the Vermont Humanities Council’s First Wednesdays lecture series and is free and open to the public. Please note the venue change for April—Trinity Church, not Rutland Free Library.

Through lecture and performance, Arnowitt will explore the music and era of Gershwin and perform “An American in Paris” and “Rhapsody in Blue,” among other memorable compositions.

Arnowitt is a classical and jazz pianist and recording artist who has performed with orchestras throughout the U.S. and Europe. His life and music are the subject of an award-winning documentary by the American filmmaker Susan Bettmann, “Beyond Eighty-Eight Keys” (2004). He lives in Montpelier.

The Vermont Humanities Council’s First Wednesdays series is held on the first Wednesday of every month from October through May in nine communities statewide, featuring speakers of national and regional renown. Talks in Rutland are held at Rutland Free Library unless otherwise noted. All First Wednesdays talks are free and open to the public.
