Music director Lorin Maazel spotlights George Gershwin in this New York Philharmonic New Year's Eve concert. Its centerpiece: excerpts from "Porgy and Bess," featuring soprano Indra Thomas, tenor Lawrence Brownlee and bass-baritone Willard White. The orchestra also performs Gershwin's "Cuban Overture" and "An American in Paris," and closes the program with John Philip Sousa's "Stars and Stripes Forever" and, of course, "Auld Lang Syne." "I won't sing it," Maazel quips. "I wouldn't want to spoil the show." Beverly Sills hosts.
