Carmel to sing virtues of Great American Songbook

Carmel’s new 1,600-seat Regional Performing Arts Center has attracted a permanent resident. The Feinstein Foundation for the Education and Preservation of the Great American Songbook plans to relocate its headquarters there.

The Feinstein Foundation, currently based in Los Angeles, holds museum artifacts that originally belonged to Ira Gershwin and then were collected by his assistant Michael Feinstein. Its mission is to preserve records related to the Great American Songbook and educate the public about its music.

Carmel’s Regional Performing Arts Center will exhibit the collection and house the Feinstein Foundation’s offices. The center and foundation will develop local, regional and national musical programming. Carmel’s Regional Performing Arts Center will be complete in the fall of 2010.

“People in the entire Indianapolis region should be pleased and proud that the Fein
stein Foundation chose to relocate its collections and programs to the Indianapolis area, after also considering moving to Las Vegas and other major cities,” said Carmel Mayor Jim Brainard.
