The very talented Harvey Granat has performed for us in two of our communities so far, with two others already on the calendar! In October and November, Harvey is bringing us the music – and the history – of George Gershwin. In January and February, we’ll be treated to another round of performances dedicated to Cole Porter. Harvey’s talents won him rave reviews. This is a sampling of what the residents of The Bristal had to say:
- “The performance last night was absolutely superb. We felt like we were at a show in Manhattan.”
- “The show last night was a real class act.”
- “That was the best show I’ve seen in years, and I go out to a lot of shows.”
Here are a few photos of his first two performances in North Woodmere and North Hills.
