Biographical Sketches

Leonard Bernstein

Composer

Leonard Bernstein is probably one of America’s foremost musical geniuses. Equally adept in the various activities of musical performance, composition, and analysis, he has done more that anyone else to make the listening of music exciting and knowledgeable to the layman. Bernstein was born in nearby Lawrence, Massachusetts and attended the Boston Latin School and Harvard University. William Shumann said of Bernstein, “He is an authentic American hero, a new breed of hero, an arts hero, showing that America does honor her artists.”

The band has performed Danzon, Overture to Candide, Symphonic Dance Music from West Side Story, and Selections from West Side Story.
