The Bernstein Story

Leonard Bernstein’s creative genius, humanity, and unforgettable work come alive in words and music in this one-of-a-kind centenary celebration.

“Now that Leonard Bernstein has been lionized... who can speak for what he truly meant to the American music scene?” asked the Philadelphia Inquirer. The answer: Jamie Bernstein, acclaimed narrator, broadcaster, writer, and daughter of the late Leonard Bernstein and actress Felicia Montealegre. Featuring arrangements recently made for the Philadelphia Orchestra, the U.S. Air Force Band and Bernstein partner to take us on a romp through music including West Side Story, Candide, On the Town, Age of Anxiety, and more.

Free, but tickets required. Limit of 6 tickets.
