This year commemorates the 100th anniversary of the great American composer, conductor, author, music educator, and pianist Leonard Bernstein. In 1958, he presented a televised series of lecture from Carnegie Hall with the New Philharmonic called “Young People’s Concerts.” This is a series of 23 concerts, each approximately an hour long, covering topics such as “What Does Music Mean,” “What is American Music,” as well as forms of music, folk music, classical music, Latin music, jazz, etc. The series included performances by the young Yo-Yo Ma, James Oliver Buswell IV, among other famous artists.
Starting on Oct 3, we will be showing this excellent series of concerts over 23 weeks, on Wednesdays from 11:00am-12:00 PM.
