Leonard Bernstein: American Idol, American Idealist

For half a century, beginning in the 1940s, Leonard Bernstein was one of the most charismatic presence on the American arts scene. Join us on Sunday, November 2nd at 2pm to gain an understanding of one of America's most colossal, but enigmatic musicians.

Karl Middleman, of the Philadelphia Classical Symphony, gives a conductor's perspective on what made Leonard Bernstein great. He also explores Bernstein's engagement with social issues and talks about Bernstein's time in Philadelphia at the Curtis Institute of Music. Video and audio recordings, as well as piano demonstrations, bring Bernstein's story to life. 

This program is free and open to the public.  No registration required.

This presentation is a program of the Pennsylvania Humanities Council supported in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities.

This program is also made possible through a grant from the Haverford Township Civic Council.
