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.
