"An American in Paris," written by George Gershwin in 1928, is an iconic composition with highly memorable melodies. Audiences may remember the use of the music in the 1951 film of the same name featuring Gene Kelly and Leslie Caron. "An American in Paris" evokes the sights and sounds of being a tourist, wandering the streets of Paris in the 1920's - not lacking in authenticity, the 1928 premiere even included the use of Parisian taxi horns.
