What Makes It Great? The Songs of Leonard Bernstein

7:30 pm Wednesday, February 7, 2018
Rob Kapilow and Jessica Rivera
Bing Concert Hall Stanford, California, United States

Rob Kapilow, pianist and composer

Rob Kapilow looks at the story behind Leonard Bernstein’s songs from West Side Story. Bernstein in the 1960s was himself a popular advocate of classical music, conducting and narrating the New York Philharmonic Young People’s Concerts live on television for a national audience. As an American composer and conductor, Bernstein crossed genres, lending his gifts to Broadway, the opera house, and the concert hall. Two vocalists will join Kapilow at the piano.
