The Anderson Brothers Play Irving Berlin in the Theater
October 10 @ 8:30 pm - 10:00 pm
With their sextet, reedmen Peter & Will Anderson will present the work of the greatest Tin Pan Alley songwriter, Irving Berlin. From his masterpieces like Blue Skies, Puttin’ on the Ritz, Cheek to Cheek, What’ll I Do, and There’s No Business Like Show Business, Berlin is considered one of the greatest songwriters in American history. The Jewish immigrant also composed patriotic and holiday songs including God Bless America, White Christmas, and Easter Parade, among over a thousand more songs.
Hailed as “virtuosos on clarinet and saxophone” by the New York Times, Peter & Will Anderson have performed concerts together since the age of 9. They’re Juilliard graduates, and have performed on Broadway, Carnegie Hall, The Kennedy Center, and at the New Orleans Jazz Festival. The Andersons can be heard on the Grammy winning soundtrack to HBO’s Boardwalk Empire with Vince Giordano’s Nighthawks, and received a Drama Desk Nomination for their Off-Broadway Production Le Jazz Hot in 2012. They can be seen and heard as saxophonists in the upcoming Martin Scorsese film, “Killers of the Flower Moon.” Aside from leading performances in over 45 U.S. States, Japan, Brazil, Canada, and the United Kingdom, they’ve lectured at over a dozen Universities across the country.
