British conductor Bramwell Tovey leads the BSO in a program that pays tribute to Bernstein as both conductor and composer. First, the orchestra is joined by the Tanglewood Festival Chorus and a cast of outstanding singers-soprano Nadine Sierra, mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard, mezzo-soprano Kelley O’Connor, tenor Nicholas Phan, baritone Elliot Madore, and bass Eric Owens- for Bernstein’s celebratory orchestral song cycle Songfest, composed for the American Bicentennial in 1976. Then, Mr. Tovey leads the BSO in Sibelius’s sweeping Symphony No. 2, a staple of Bernstein’s conducting repertory.
