Leonard Bernstein: The Power of Music
National Museum of American Jewish History, Philadelphia, PA, United States "Leonard Bernstein: The Power of Music," organized by the National Museum of American Jewish history, celebrates the centennial birthday of one of the 20th century’s most influential cultural figures, who personified classical music and produced a rich repertoire of original compositions for orchestra and the theater. Audiences may be familiar with many of Bernstein’s works, notably West Side Story, but not necessarily how he grappled with his own religious, political, and sexual identity, or how he responded to the political and social crises of his day. Visitors will find an individual who expressed the restlessness, anxiety, fear, and hope of an American Jew living through World War II and the Holocaust, Vietnam, and turbulent social change – what Bernstein referred to as his “search for a solution to the 20th‐century crisis of faith.” The exhibition features one‐of‐a‐kind historic artifacts, all brought to life through immersive film, sound installations, and interactive media. The exhibition will be on view March 16 - September 2, 2018. The exhibition has been made possible in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities: Exploring the human endeavor.
