As popular music genres like jazz and musical evolved in the 20th century, the barrier between “classical” and “popular” has been gradually broken with more cross-over between the  genres. This concert will feature works by two leading exponents of “cross-over”-George Gershwin and Leonard Bernstein – showcasing the charms and charisma of music being created when Classical meets Pop. Lio Kuokman, a conductor and pianist at same time, will knock the piano himself for Gershwin’s famous masterpiece Rhapsody in Blue, displaying its ingenious mix of jazz and classical concerto.
