August 25, 2018 marked the 100th birthday of Leonard Bernstein, often called the greatest musician of modern times. He was one of the most important American musicians of the 20th Century as a composer, jet-set conductor, world-renowned pianist, teacher and TV celebrity.
Aaron Copland, Ned Rorem, Stephen Sondheim and the collaborative team of Betty Comden and Adolph Green were among Bernstein’s inner circle. What amazing company! Bernstein and Friends will be a kaleidoscopic trip through some of the most exciting, fun, moving and beautifully crafted songs in the American Songbook, honoring Bernstein and his talented friends.
