American Composer Focus: Leonard Bernstein
The Aaron Copland School of Music Orchestra, under the batons of James John and Tong Chen, offers an all-Bernstein program to honor the 100th Anniversary of the composer's birth and in memory of Maestro Maurice Peress, distinguished conductor of the orchestra (1930-2017). Hear Bernstein’s Symphony No. 1, Jeremiah; the choral work Chichester Psalms (featuring the Queens College Choir and Nassau Community College Vocal Ensemble, James John and Ben Arendsen, directors); and "Make Our Garden Grow" from Candide. Maestro Peress, who planned this concert, began his career as assistant conductor under Bernstein at the New York Philharmonic. Bernstein's mentor Aaron Copland was a student of Rubin Goldmark, a member of Antonin Dvorak 's class of 1893 in New York City.
