Leonard Bernstein: The Power of Music
The exhibition “Leonard Bernstein: The Power of Music” includes artifacts and photographs on loan from the composer’s family and other collections that explore his life, Jewish identity, social activism and his time at Brandeis and in Boston. At interactive stations you’ll explore works by Bernstein, from Candide to West Side Story to Kaddish. Whether it’s an annotated score, a pop-culture reinterpretation of “America,” or Bernstein’s application to Harvard, the exhibition offers keys to the many layers of the composer’s life. Organized by the National Museum of American Jewish History in Philadelphia. Free and open to the public Wednesday - Sunday, noon to 5 pm; Thursdays from noon - 8 pm. Easily accessible by the MBTA bus and commuter rail. Free parking. The Dreitzer Gallery is accessible by a short flight of stairs. For information on group tours: email@example.com or 781-736-5008.
