School of the Arts chancellor releases Gershwin recording

Bookmark and Share

UNC School of the Arts chancellor John Mauceri has released a new studio recording of the George and Ira Gershwin 1930 Broadway classic, "Strike Up the Band."

An earlier version of the score was released in 1991, but the final score, which was extensively revised by the Gershwins, was never fully tracked until now.

The disc was released by PS Classics, a label devoted to American theatre music and popular song.

Mauceri conducted the 28-piece orchestra featured on the score. The final project was completed this spring. You can get more details at Playbill.

Mauceri has been the chancellor at UNCSA since 2006. He was a consultant for music theater at Washington’s Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts for more than a decade, and for 18 years, Mauceri worked closely with Leonard Bernstein and conducted many of the composer’s premieres at Bernstein’s request.
