The Bernstein Centennial Celebration at Tanglewood

9512

Synopsis

Leonard Bernstein taught and performed at Tanglewood virtually every summer for fifty years where he forged and nutured some of his most enduring friendships and collaborations. Few places held as profound a meaning for him, and for its part, Tanglewood has always felt enormous pride to count Bernstein among its native sons. When the Tanglewood grounds expanded in 1994, the new campus was named for him. Nevertheless, it was at Tanglewood, two months before his death in 1990, that Bernstein conducted his last concert. This year, on August 25th, the Boston Symphony Orchestra is joined by conductors like Andris Nelsons, John Williams, Keith Lockhart, Christoph Eschenbach, Michael Tilson Thomas and solists like Audra McDonald, Midori, Yo-Yo Ma, Nadine Sierra, Susan Graham, Thomas Hampson…to celebrate the 100th birthday of Bernstein at Tanglewood.
