A whole evening of George Gershwin's music presented by a 23-piece orchestra with three soloists Including pianist Jesus Maria Sanroma, the composer's favorite protege has been booked by the Alton Community Concert Association for next year. The orchestra is conducted by Lorin Maazel, former child prodigy who as an adult became a protege of the late Serge Koussevitzky. Vocal soloists with the Gershwin Festival will be Theodor Uppman, baritone, and Carolyn Long, coprano. Uppman, though an American, was chosen for the title role during the past year and Benjamin Britten's new opera "Billy Budd" had its premiere in London. Miss Long is just completing her sixth season of extensive concertiz- ing across the country. Annually the Concert Association selects one, sometimes two, attractions to announce before its spring membership enrollment. This year's final "roundup" in the enrollment period is the week of April 28. At the end of that week, when the board knows what funds it has available from the membership fees, it will select the re- mainder of the coming season's attractions, which usually tolal either four or five. In the case of the Gershwin family, the concert orchestra and the whole troupe has been organized with the approval of the late composer's family. Its entire program has been set up by Ira Gershwin, lyricist for many of his brother's songs, who picked for the concert what he regarded as the high points of the composer's output. Gerswhin's best-loved tunes and rhythms come to life again in the opening overture and vocal group, which include "Somebody Loves Me," "The Man I Love," "Someone 1o Watch Over Me," "S" "Wonderful," "I Got Rhythm," "Who Cares?" and many others. Gershwin was the first American to popularize the use of the jazz idiom in a larger symphonic form, and three of his orchestral works will be performed. The-,e are "Rhapsody in Blue," Hie Piano Concerto in F commissioned by Walter Damrosch off the New York Symphony Orchestra in 19'J5 and first played wilh the composer as pianist; and "An American in Paris."
