Leonard Bernstein is one of America’s most beloved composers and conductors. On this concert, we connect with a sample of his compositions, showing the wide range of sound that Bernstein creates.
The featured piece is Chichester Psalms, a three-movement setting of Hebrew Psalms for organ, harp and percussion. These settings range from powerful, to ecstatically joyful, to serenely beautiful. The second movement is from Psalm 23 (“The Lord is my shepherd…), and we are proud to introduce Luke Tyndall singing the boy soprano solo!
We will also sing two selections from Bernstein’s Mass, which was commissioned by Jaqueline Kennedy for the opening of the Kennedy Center for the Arts in Washington, D.C.
No sample of Bernstein’s music would be complete without selections from his Broadway musicals. We will present two selections from Candide and four selections from West Side Story.
Connect with this wonderful music!
