Gershwin with Long Bay Symphony


Join Amanda & pianist Vance Reese for a digital performance series, beginning July 2020.

When you join the mailing list, you’ll receive periodic links to uplifting mini-concerts, via email.
Our goal is to provide inspiring music that feeds the soul.

We welcome your requests for music you would love to hear during these days when we
face the fears of a pandemic, reckon with racism and injustice,
and miss the magical connection of live performances.
Our programming currently includes songs spanning classical, Broadway, sacred and folk tunes.
