"Make Our Garden Grow" from Candide,Anniversaries for Piano
Broadway Presbyterian Church, New York, NY, United States Notes from 108th Street coincides with the worldwide celebration of Leonard Bernstein at 100, and this year's event will feature the music of this legendary composer, conductor, educator, cultural ambassador, and humanitarian performed by BSM students and faculty. Inspired by Bernstein's multiple musical gifts, BSM's instrumental and ensemble programs are complemented by the school's unique emphasis on composition for very young children. We are pleased to share our student's creativity as we present compositions by BSM students created through our Album for the Young/Student Composition Program, performed by their fellow classmates. This year we are honoring Alexander Bernstein and the work of Artful Learning, an arts integration model founded by Leonard Bernstein that empowers educators to use the arts and the artistic process to awaken and sustain the love of learning for all students. We are pleased to acknowledge Alexander's dedicated stewardship of Artful Learning and to applaud all his efforts in support of music education. A highlight of Notes from 108th Street will be excerpts of "Leonard Bernstein: His World through His Music," Alexander's poignant sharing of personal remembrances of his father along with photos of individuals immortalized by Leonard's "Anniversaries for Piano." These compositions served as musical postcards/gifts for important people in his life including some of his musical mentors and family members: Aaron Copland, Serge Koussevitsky, Stephen Sondheim, and his wife, Felicia Montealegre. The evening will be hosted by Ken Fischer, President Emeritus of the University Musical Society, a witty raconteur who presented Leonard Bernstein in concert and is a strong supporter of BSM's commitment to accessible music education for all.
