San Juan Symphony - Leonard Bernstein Centennial
From Broadway to the silver screen and everywhere in-between, Leonard Bernstein personifies the ideal American musician. A visionary composer, conductor, and educator, Bernstein brought classical music into the American cultural fabric and used performance as a response to political turmoil in the 20th century. His life and works will be center stage with the San Juan Symphony as we celebrate his centenary year, featuring movie music from On The Waterfront with Marlin Brando and familiar favorites from Candide and West Side Story.
