Luminaries from the worlds of musical theater, dance, and classical music join forces to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the birth of American musical icon Leonard Bernstein.

In a program that celebrates the wealth and breadth of Leonard Bernstein’s music, Misty Copeland and Tony Yazbeck are featured in the Dream Ballet from On the Town, and Paquito d’Rivera shines the spotlight on Bernstein jazz in Prelude, Fugue and Riffs. Musical theater highlights include “Maria” and “Cool” (with The Manhattan Transfer & Take 6) from West Side Story as well as “Glitter and Be Gay” (with Erin Morley as Cunegonde), “Auto-da-fe” (featuring George Takei as Pangloss), and “Make Our Garden Grow” from Candide. The Choral Arts Society of Washington and National Cathedral treble soloist Enzo Baldanza perform Chichester Psalms, and artists from Wolf Trap Opera offer selections from Songfest.
