Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong’s ‘Summertime’ is the Santa Lucia Song of the Day!

Summer is just right around the corner! This song has always been a favorite at Santa Lucia!

Summertime” is an aria composed in 1934 by George Gershwin for the 1935 opera Porgy and Bess. The lyrics are by DuBose Heyward, the author of the novel Porgy on which the opera was based, although the song is also co-credited to Ira Gershwin by ASCAP.
