At the age of 9, Richard Glazier was smitten by the music of Gershwin after seeing the film “Girl Crazy.” He wrote a letter to Ira Gershwin and continued to correspond with him for many years. Fueled by that relationship, Glazier dedicated himself the the Gershwin repertoire and became the leading authority on that genre. He has won many international awards and competitions and has the distinction of being selected as a Steinway Artist.
