‘Bernstein at 100’ is the world-wide celebration of the 100th birthday of Leonard Bernstein, the superstar composer and conductor.
Help us celebrate with this fabulous morning concert featuring three of Bernstein’s most wonderful works: the beloved Overture to Candide, which many believe to be the great American opera; The Age of Anxiety which is based on Auden’s poem; and finally Symphonic Dances from West Side Story, a dazzling conclusion of what many call ‘jeans-and-sneakers-ballet music’ for this joyous celebration.
