The Musical Theater of Leonard Bernstein: Trouble in Tahiti and Wonderful Town

Join us as we continue to celebrate Leonard Bernstein’s 100th birthday with this yearlong, 12-lecture series exploring his extraordinary legacy as a composer of theater and concert music, conductor and teacher. This spring we focus on the musical theater of Leonard Bernstein.
