The Best of Bernstein

*view multiple performance dates above

WASO celebrates the 100th birthday of the composer of West Side Story.

Composer, conductor, educator - Leonard Bernstein was quite simply one of the greatest musicians of the twentieth-century. Extravagantly talented and boundlessly creative, he fused genres and styles to create quintessentially American music.

To mark the 100th anniversary of Bernstein’s birth, Benjamin Northey conducts a spectacular program showcasing ‘Lenny’s’ work for Broadway, film screen and concert stage, from the streetwise West Side Story to the hopeful and uplifting Chichester Psalms.

Presented by West Australian Symphony Orchestra
