CLASSICAL | RPO with Jean Thibaudet 

No American composer has merged jazz and classical music as successfully as George Gershwin. On Wednesday, illustrious French pianist Jean-Yves Thibaudet will join the Rochester Philharmonic Orchestra and Music Director Ward Stare in an all-Gershwin celebration. Thibaudet's elegant and majestic playing style will be an ideal fit for "Concerto in F," which Gershwin largely composed in Western New York. The program will also highlight the composer's penchant for charming tunes with music from "An American in Paris," Girl Crazy," and the opera "Porgy and Bess."

Jean-Yves Thibaudet and the RPO will perform on Wednesday, October 3, 8 p.m. at Eastman theatre's Kodak Hall, 60 Gibbs Street. $24-$106. 454-2100.;
