Jan Peerce was a great singer, universally acclaimed as one of the outstanding artists of his time, a role model of the American Dream.
Commencing with Peerce`s roots on the Lower East Side of New York, and traveling “uptown” and around the world with him, we will view his life through music performance, and interviews with famed concert violinist, and host, Isaac Stern. In addition, video and film footage of Jan Peerce, some of which has never been publicly shown, will bring to life his dynamic, entertaining, and witty personality.
