Leonard Bernstein’s musical contributions span across the musical landscape. As a conductor for the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, he ranks among the world’s most respected. As a composer, his works have crossed the boundaries of choral, symphonic, movie score, Broadway, chamber, and jazz. As an educator, Bernstein’s “young peoples” concerts have reached legendary status, combining musical performance with concert lectures.

To celebrate Leonard Bernstein’s centennial, the SJMO has commissioned a series of new arrangements of selected works by the master himself, including his “Chichester Psalms” and “The Great Lover Displays.” The museum’s Constitution Ave doors will open at 6:45 p.m. and the LeRoy Neiman Jazz Café Stand will be open and serving light fare and drink options for purchase from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Food and drink are welcome at seats in the Performance Plaza. More details on the evening will be available soon.

This concert is made possible through generous support from David C. Frederick and Sophia Lynn.

This concert is in partnership with DC Jazz Festival’s Jazz in the ‘Hoods® series. Explore the festival’s extensive lineup of jazz and musicians highlighting cultural diversity in our nation’s capital: https://dcjazzfest.org/
