Alexandria, Va. - Sunday, May 13 at 2 p.m. - The year 2018 marks the 100th year of the birth of the great American conductor, composer, and educator Leonard Bernstein. From his featured conducting debut with the New York Philharmonic in 1943 that catapulted him into the spotlight, to his emotional, final performance with the Boston Symphony Orchestra at the Tanglewood Music Center just a few months before his death in 1990, Bernstein left a mark on the orchestral world that has not been surpassed by any other American conductor. This concert highlights several fascinating moments in Bernstein’s phenomenal career as both a composer and conductor and pays tribute to the creativity and originality of a true American musical icon. The concert, which is free and open to the public, will take place in Northern Virginia Community College's Schlesinger Concert Hall in Alexandria, Va.
