In conjunction with their annual informational meetings, Senior Summer School is bringing one of their most beloved instructors and entertainers to Arizona to promote their summer programming. Bruno Leone will entertain and dazzle with a free piano concert and lecture on the “Life and Music of George Gershwin.” Bruno Leone will be performing on Thursday, March 3 at 1:00 p.m. at the Jewish Community Center at 12701 N. Scottsdale Road in Scottsdale, AZ and 7:00 p.m. at the Sun City West Foundation at 14465 West R. H. Johnson Blvd. in Sun City West, AZ.

Wanting to showcase the quality of their instructors and entertainers, Senior Summer School is highlighting one of their faculty in hopes it will entice Arizona residents to escape the heat and check out one of their senior travel opportunities.
