Bernstein's Birthday Party

Celebrated composer, conductor, and music educator Leonard Bernstein became a household name in the 1960s, using his Young People’s Concerts on television to invite people into the world of classical music. In fact, he also served as inspiration for the ISO’s Teddy Bear Series mascot, the lovable Mr. “Bear”nstein! Join the ISO in celebrating 100 years of Bernstein by playing some of his most notable works including West Side Story, Candide, and On the Town, along with other pieces from his influencers and peers like Aaron Copland, Gustav Mahler, and more.

This performance is in celebration of Leonard Bernstein and his 100th birthday on the anniversary of his death, October 14th, 1990. Follow along with the official Bernstein at 100 program through social media and use #BernsteinAt100. Follow the movement on  Facebook and Twitter
