The Passion of Leonard Bernstein

Washington, D.C. is celebrating the legacy of Leonard Bernstein during his centennial year and we invite you to join us. Explore a listing of events throughout the city. Immerse yourself in #BernsteinAt100:

As part of the worldwide "Leonard Bernstein at 100" celebration, New York Festival of Song offers a Leonard Bernstein extravaganza. The concert features selections from a wide range of the maestro's musical offerings: concert pieces (excerpts from Arias and Barcarolles, Mass, and Songfest), Broadway (On the Town, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue), the opera house (Trouble in Tahiti), as well as some precious rarities from the trunk. Bernstein's kaleidoscopic vision of the American experience remains a vital and passionate touchstone for today's listeners. (Approximate running time including one 20-minute intermission: 90 minutes).

"[New York Festival of Song]... delivered everything that a song recital can achieve, in terms of musical revelation, vocal excellence and audience engagement."

Tim Page, The Washington Post
