This will be our reply to violence: to make music more intensely, more beautifully, more devotedly than ever before.
— Leonard Bernstein

Synopsis

A World Premiere cabaret evening of the most beloved songs of Leonard Bernstein, whose centenary we are celebrating in 2018. Music for this original YAA program is drawn from a variety of Bernstein's works, some well known and some less so, including On the Town (1944), Peter Pan (1950), Candide (1956), 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue (1976), Mass (1977), and of course West Side Story (1957).

Bernstein's mixture of classical, theater, and popular influences is exhilarating, sounding like no other classical, theater, or popular music, and this program promises to be a joyful celebration of his music.
