Gene Kelly: A Life in Music


While most people think of dance when they think of Gene Kelly, music was central to his work. It influenced him; inspired him; and, in many ways, defined him. In 1969, the musical arrangements to many of MGM’s classic films were destroyed. Now with these scores carefully reconstructed, we are able to bring you a remarkable event: Gene Kelly dancing on the big screen accompanied live by the magnificent Kingston Symphony! Featuring clips from some of his most popular films, including Singin’ in the Rain, An American in Paris, Brigadoon, Les Girls, his joyful dance with Jerry the Mouse in Anchors Aweigh, plus rarely-seen numbers from television specials and rare broadcasts, this special event hosted by Kelly’s wife and biographer, Patricia Ward Kelly, takes you behind the scenes as she shares Gene Kelly’s own insights about the making of these enduring and beloved works.
