Gershwin Piano Concerto in F 

About This Concert

“Cultural Appropriation” is one of the many hot-button phrases of the 21st century, but what exactly does it mean? At what point does borrowing culture become stealing, or “appropriating”. Classical MPR's Garrett McQueen will explore this topic, alongside special guests, before this week's concerts.
