ABOUT THE CONCERT
Our final concert commemorates the 100th birthday of legendary American composer, conductor, and pianist Leonard Bernstein. His multi-faceted life is reflected in the programming: ragtime rhythms from the musical On the Town, the prayerful Halil for flute and chamber orchestra, and the dramatic Mass, which includes traditional Latin texts as well as English texts written by Bernstein himself, Broadway composer Stephen Schwartz, and Paul Simon.
