San Francisco: Seasonlong Bernstein tribute begins

September 22, 2017 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

Few of today’s musicians have done more to pick up where Leonard Bernstein left off than Michael Tilson Thomas, music director of the San Francisco Symphony and artistic director of the New World Symphony. Much like his forebear, Thomas has devoted a great deal of his time to education and put an emphasis on American composers like Aaron Copland, Charles Ives, and Steve Reich. As part of an extended festival, Thomas leads a program titled Celebrating Bernstein with MTT, which includes Prelude, Fugue and RiffsChichester Psalms, and Arias and Barcarolles. Among the guest artists are mezzo-soprano Isabel Leonard, bass-baritone Ryan McKinny, and actors Matt Herrero and Jack O’Reilly. (Library of Congress photo) — Kyle MacMillan
