Please participate in the Leonard Bernstein Memory Project!

So many of you who experienced Leonard Bernstein up close have a story to tell. The Memory Project hopes to collect them and build a unique digital memorial to the Maestro. You can submit anything from a brief audio account, to a photo of a memento, to a written description of a personal experience. We know there are thousands of you out there with such stories! Please share them with us, so that we can help share them
with the rest of the world. You can submit them here.

Official Centennial Logo

On this page you will find a guide to using the official logo of the Leonard Bernstein at 100 centennial. Concert and event presenters may use the logo to promote events, and we ask that in exchange you will let us know of your event by adding it to the calendar.

Grammy Museum Exhibition: Leonard Bernstein at 100

The GRAMMY Museum's free traveling exhibition draws from more than 150 artifacts including photographs, personal items, papers, scores, and more. Experience it now at the Kennedy Center through Nov. 5!

Centennial Honorary Committee

We have compiled a Centennial Committee to serve as a reflection of the extraordinarily wide range of friends, colleagues and admirers around the world whose lives were – and still are – touched by him. View the list here.


We have resources throughout the site to aid presenters in planning their Centennial celebrations. The Boosey&Hawkes Programming Guide will walk you through Bernstein's musical compositions. Also, we have assembled a list of Ancillary Programs that can augment events through a variety of recitals, concerts, master-classes, lectures, and symposia.
