Bernstein on Broadway

Saturday 8th December 2018

7:30 pm

2018 has seen the whole world celebrate the extraordinary talents of Leonard Bernstein, one of the most gifted musicians who ever lived. Between 1942 and 1957 he wrote three wildly successful Broadway shows, all of which are infused with the energy and excitement of New York. The orchestra sets the scene with several toe-tapping numbers from On the Town before the chorus takes centre stage with unforgettable music from West Side Story. Wonderful Town tells the all-singing, all-dancing story of Eileen and Ruth, two sisters straight off the bus from Ohio who’ve come to 1930s New York to seek fame and fortune as a writer and an actress. But will they make it? With a brilliant cast, led by star of stage and screen Rebekah Hinds, this rare concert performance of Bernstein’s Tony-award-winning musical is not to be missed.

Bernstein Music from On the Town, Choral Suite from West Side Story and Wonderful Town (concert performance)
