Enjoy a New Years musical adventure with Maestro Karl Middleman, exploring the multi-faceted worlds of Leonard Bernstein, in this, the 100th anniversary year of his birth. He was an excellent pianist, brilliant composer, peerless educator, and perhaps the greatest conductor in modern times. Like no other musician of his age, Leonard Bernstein straddled extremely different musical arenas. An intellectual capable of writing complex symphonies, he was equally at home writing music for the Broadway stage, and with West Side Story, created the greatest postwar work of American musical theater. And he was a human rights crusader for civil rights, gender equality, and in the AIDS epidemic.
