Notes from 108th Street coincides with the worldwide celebration of Leonard Bernstein's 100th birthday, Bernstein at 100, and this year's event will feature the music of this legendary composer, conductor, educator, cultural ambassador, and humanitarian performed by BSM students and faculty.
As we honor Alexander Bernstein and the work of Artful Learning, we are pleased to acknowledge Alexander's dedicated stewardship of this important program and to applaud all his efforts in support of music education.
A highlight of Notes from 108th Street will be excerpts of "Leonard Bernstein: His World through His Music," Alexander's poignant sharing of personal remembrances of his father along with photos of individuals immortalized by Leonard's "Anniversaries for Piano."
These compositions served as musical postcards/gifts for important people in his life including some of his musical mentors and family members: Aaron Copland, Serge Koussevitsky, Stephen Sondheim, and his wife, Felicia Montealegre.
The evening will be hosted by Ken Fischer, President Emeritus of the University Musical Society, a witty raconteur who presented Leonard Bernstein in concert and is a strong supporter of BSM's commitment to accessible music education for all.
With Alexander Bernstein as an incredible honoree, and a unique chance to feature Leonard Bernstein's work during an historic centennial year, this is an event not to be missed! Tickets are available at www.bsmny.org/notesfrom108
