Leonard Bernstein at 101: Is He Still Mr. Music America?

Instructor(s)

Instructor of Lifelong Learning
Location

Date
Wednesdays, September 11-October 23 (no class Oct 9)
Time
1-3 p.m.

In life, Lenny Bernstein was larger than life: conductor, composer, teacher, social activist, celebrity, and family man (albeit troubled by personal demons and doubts). Now that celebrations marking his 100th birthday have ended, what of his legacy remains? In this course, we will review Bernstein's manifold achievements and consider whether he merits our continued attention, admiration, inspiration and, maybe, even love. Since Lenny was his own best advocate, we will use lots of examples - video and audio - to make our case and to reach a balanced verdict.

Co-sponsored by the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage.
