George Gershwin and Kay Swift: An Evening of Song and Television
Christine Ebersole, Klea Blackhurst and Jimmy Ray Bennett were at the Paley Center for Media on May 15th, 2008, to perform the songs of George Gershwin and Kay Swift. Artistic Advisor to the Kay Swift Trust Aaron Gandy provided commentary interspersed with rare radio and television clips from the Paley Center's collection on how the lives of these two songwriters intersected in the twenties and thirties.

The Kay Swift Memorial Trust has several projects in development including:
  • Publication of Kay Swift's chamber music and other works
  • A reissue of Kay Swift's 1943 autobiographical novel Who Could Ask For Anything More? paired with elements of her unpublished memoir
  • Performance of the 1934 Balanchine ballet Alma Mater
