“What a wonderful world…”

The survival of the American Songbook may well depend on youngsters like the talented Anderson Twins who keep it strong.

Each summer, the Andersons, Will (alto sax) and Peter (tenor, soprano sax and clarinet), join forces with stalwarts like Vince Giordano, Paul Wells and Molly Ryan to namedrop just a few to represent the songbook in much of its rich variety.

Here they are again to head up the Songbook Summit 2019 at Symphony Space in mid August. This year’s iteration covers the music of Duke Ellington (August 13-15) and Louis Armstrong (8/21-23).

The brothers may be young, but Peter and Will have been doing this for some years. They apply their expertise and training to performing the standards along side the older-timers on the bill.

The Andersons have a wit, style and finesse that permeates their performance and their curations. Join them later this summer to hear them and their colleagues perform tributes to just two of America’s prolific and inventive composers.
