The Library for the Performing Arts at Lincoln Center teams up with Tanglewood to present a sonic portrait of Leonard Bernstein’s spirited first years in New York City. In 1940, after graduating from Harvard and the Curtis Institute of Music, Bernstein moved to Manhattan, where he palled-around with Stella Adler and Marlon Brando, and accompanied Judy Holiday in Greenwich Village night clubs. By 1943, he was conducting The New York Philharmonic. Just one year later he had created the Broadway sensation On the Town with Jerome Robbins, Adolph Green, and Betty Comden. Join us for a multifaceted celebration of young talent in an exhilarating city, with expert special guests, display of Comden and Green manuscripts from the Library's collection, plus live performances of Bernstein's early chamber music master works, and an On the Town sing along.
