This year marks the worldwide celebration of the 100th birthday of Leonard Bernstein, composer, conductor, educator, musician, cultural ambassador, and humanitarian.
We invite everyone to experience Bernstein at 100, a festival comprising 20 events on the CU Boulder campus over the course of the Fall 2018 semester. Highlights include a Public Talk with special guests Jamie Bernstein, former New York Philharmonic concertmaster Glenn Dicterow, and Bernstein scholar Carol Oja; our own recreation of a Young People’s Concert; and Eklund Opera Program’s production of “West Side Story.”
New AMRC Director, Susan Thomas will be moderating the Public Talk with Carol Oja, Jamie Bernstein and Glenn Dicterow on Monday, September 24 from 4-6 p.m in Grusin Hall. Please join the CU Boulder College of Music and the AMRC as our ensembles, students, faculty, and guests embark on a journey through Bernstein’s lifework throughout the Fall 2018 semester.
