A centenary celebration of American Icon Leonard Bernstein!
American Icon Leonard Bernstein 100 years
We open our season with a centenary celebration of American icon Leonard Bernstein, born in August of 1918! His Overture to Candide contains all of the great melodic energy and exuberance that was a hallmark of his passion and personality. LSO Principal Oboist Alexandra Shatalova Prior will perform Mozart’s beloved Oboe Concerto and we conclude with Beethoven’s immortal Symphony No. 7 in A major, a deep and personal favorite of Bernstein during his conducting career which embraced two of the world’s great orchestras: the New York Philharmonic and the Berlin Philharmonic.
Concert begins at 7:30 PM. Callaway auditorium is located on Dallis Street which is part of the campus of LaGrange College.
