FROM THE STAGE
Christian Woehr, Assistant Principal Viola, on George Gershwin:
“I’ve been going tothe Chautauqua Music Festival in upstate New York since I was a little kid. My parents played in the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra so I spent my whole child-hood there. When I was a kid there were still people playing in the orchestra who had been there during Gershwin’s days at Chautauqua.“It’s a little town, with these practice shacks that have been given composernames. I took French horn lessons in the Brahms-Schumann shack, and it is inthis double shack where the Concerto in F was born. Gershwin wrote a two-piano version of the piece, and then went back to New York and orchestrated it 
for Walter Damrosch, who had commissioned it and rst conducted it with the
New York Symphony.“Chautauqua is an idyllic place, but I imagine that writing in the practice
shacks, surrounded by fty other practice shacks—Gershwin must have had
amazing powers of concentration. But he could compose in a party.”
