Pianist Richard Glazier

It happened at the tender age of nine, while watching the film “Girl Crazy.” Richard Glazier was so excited by the music he heard in that film – scored by George and Ira Gershwin - it prompted him to write a fan letter to lyricist Ira Gershwin. That letter led to a correspondence and friendship that would set Glazier on his career path.
The classically-trained, award-winning pianist will perform an all-Gershwin concert at the Auburn State Theater April 23rd and he’ll perform “Rhapsody in Blue” with the Auburn Symphony during their Mother’s Day Concert May 8that the Mondavi Center. Today on Insight, we’ll talk with Glazier about his longtime love affair with the music of Gerswhin and we’ll hear some of his music.
