Michael Feinstein: "I Was Ira Gershwin's Kindred Spirit"

Nobody works as hard to keep the popular music of the early 20th century alive as Michael Feinstein. From his PBS documentary. Michael Feinstein's American Songbook to the memoir he wrote, The Gershwins and Me: A Personal History in Twelve Songs which chronicled his time learning from the legendary songsmith Ira Gershwin to his countless live performances, Feinstein has been relentless in celebrating the songs of yesteryear.

Feinstein will be conducing Kravis Center Pops Orchestra in West Palm Beach for three performances. We spoke with the legend about his love for the Great American Songbook, his time with Ira Gershwin, and his favorite memories performing at Kravis Center.
