In this anniversary year for Leonard Bernstein, Dr. Callahan will delve into the under-explored realm of the physicality of Bernstein’s conducting practices, including the role of sexuality from Bernstein’s and his critics’ perspectives. Additionally, the carefully crafted choreography of Bernstein’s conducting will be supported by documentation from unpublished films and materials from the Leonard Bernstein Collection in the Library of Congress.
