Curtis on Tour: Bernstein’s 100th Birthday Celebration


Alberta Rose Theatre Northeast
March 9, 7:30 pm 21+


Recommended by Brian Horay

The grave of Leonard Bernstein sits on a Brooklyn hilltop, complete with a panoramic vista of water and city that includes the Statue of Liberty in the distance—an apt view for one of America's greatest musical legends. As a tireless educator, Bernstein would be proud to know that some of the brightest students from Philadelphia's Curtis Institute of Music are traveling the country this year to celebrate the centenary of his birth. These young artists are joining forces with clarinet god David Shifrin and the Zorá String Quartet for a setlist that includes several works from the composer's catalog, including an arrangement of songs and dances from his smash hit West Side Story. Along with pieces from Bernstein, the program also includes music composed by other notable first-generation Americans: Aaron Copland and George Gershwin. Something's comin', something good!
