As a gifted composer, conductor, pianist, author, educator, advocate and communicator, Leonard Bernstein could do it all. His West Side Story stands as one of the signal achievements of American musical theater. Its melding of sophisticated formal construction with toe-tapping rhythms and irresistible melodic turns makes it one of the enduring treasures of the 20th century. Join us as we present a rare opportunity to hear the entire score in dramatic concert with full symphony orchestra, soloists and chorus. There’s no better way to celebrate the 100th birthday of this American musical legend, or to bring our 60th anniversary season to a triumphant conclusion.
