Gorgeous George

Concert goers flock to fashions of the Gershwin era.

"Great Gershwin" will offer a bit of an offstage show to Friday evening ticket
holders. Members of the Detroit Area Art Deco Society (DAADS) will be
dressed in the clothing stylish during the Gershwin years and set up a booth
with some vintage pieces of art.
"After we heard about the Gershwin concerts, we decided that we wanted to
be part of it all because that's our era," says Robin Cohen, president of the
group and owner of Antiques on Main in Royal Oak. "We like the feeling of
going back in time, and in those years, going to a concert was a very important
event."
Cohen, also a member of Temple Shir
Shalom, expects that women members of
DAADS will be wearing flapper dresses,
while the men will be in pinstripe suits.
The art booth will be one way of welcom-
ing the crowd to Meadow Brook and getting
people into the mood of the repertoire.
The group, which also wants to support
the Detroit Symphony Orchestra, has dressed
up for other events and causes that recall the
era when Art Deco reached peak interest.
They most recently donned 1920s wear for a
special program to support building renova-
tion at the Redford Theatre.
"I have a tremendous amount of enthusi-
asm for anything that allows people to make
connections between the different arts," says
Jeffrey Kahane, who will be conducting and
Some concert goers may copy the
playing piano at the Gershwin concerts. "I
attire of composer George
think that's enriching for the audience and a
Gershwin, shown here in a pin-
real bonus."

— Suzanne Chessler stripe suit.

The advancement of Kahane's career
onto distant stages in major cities
throughout the world brought along
recordings that have made his talents
accessible to the homes of fans. He
recently finished a CD of Bach violin
concertos featuring Hillary Hahn. It will
be out in September.
The musician-conductor, also a win-
ner of the Avery Fisher Career Grant in
1983 and the first Andrew Wolf
Chamber Music Award in 1987, is in
the midst of a busy summer.
He played all five Beethoven concertos
with the Oregon Bach Festival Orchestra
and will be appearing at Lincoln Center
and Tanglewood in addition to his own
California venues.
"When I'm on vacation, I spend most
of my time relaxing with my family and
reading," says the performer, whose wife,
Martha, is a psychologist and whose son
and daughter are entering the world of
entertainment.
Gabriel, a recent graduate of Brown
University, is a jazz pianist and composer
who has been on stage with his father
and is pursuing his career in New York.
Annie, 15, who decided on her own to

have a bat mitzvah and led her family
back into synagogue activity, is a serious
dance student striving toward working
in musical theater.
As Kahane takes the outdoor stage at
Meadow Brook, he will bring experience
as artistic director of the newly founded
Green Music Festival in Sonoma
County and of programs that involve
family attendance.
He has invited high-school choirs to
sing to the music of symphony instru-
mentalists, and he has planned concerts
targeted at young people of various ages.
"Musicians need very good concentra-
tion when performing outdoors because
of the noise that can come from such
things as planes flying overhead," he
says. "I've done a lot of outdoor play-
ing."
