Friday, October 12, 8 pm concert at Schuster Center details connections between American classical music uniqueness and uniqueness of Leonard Bernstein
On Friday evening, October 12 at 8 pm in the Schuster Center, Dayton Philharmonic Orchestra Music Director Neal Gittleman will provide an insightful glimpse into the classical compositions of American composer Leonard Bernstein. The opener of the 2007-2008 Dayton Daily News Classical Connections concert series, entitled Profile: Leonard Bernstein, deals with the music of a composer whose works virtually describe the American psyche. Interestingly, it was Leonard Bernstein’s Young People’s Concerts of the 1950s that inspired Neal Gittleman’s Classical Connections program approach.
This concert is the fifth of six concert programs the DPO will present in September and October. These six programs constitute the NCR Made in America Festival and feature exclusively the works of American composers and the talent of American artists.
Tickets $10.50 to $39.
