Superhero of the American arts Leonard Bernstein gets a 100th birthday bash filled with limitless imagination! Bernstein expanded the dimensions of classical music and defied all categories and stereotypes during his legendary career. In the process, he completely redefined the American sound, collaborating with people like Paul Simon and Frank Sinatra and counting the Beatles and Motown among his influences—even as he introduced new audiences to classical music through the New York Philharmonic’s Young People’s Concerts from 1958-1972: the first such project to be aired on broadcast television. The only way to celebrate this kind of legacy is an event featuring groundbreaking artists and innovative performances:
-Kitty McNamee’s dancers and DJ E.Z. Mike take us on an electrifying journey of what Bernstein’s score for On the Waterfront can mean for us today, with projected visuals by artists from JPL.
-Classical crossover violinist Charles Yang lends his “guerrilla-style” flair to a suite of songs from West Side Story, plus a few surprises.
-And the LA Choral Lab stirs the soul and shows us the promise of tomorrow with selections including “Make our Garden Grow” from Candide.
Join MUSE/IQUE as we explore the kaleidoscopic influences of this wholly American icon!
