Concert for Kids: Bernstein's Birthday Bash

Classical, Family/Child

Not long ago Leonard Bernstein—celebrated composer, conductor and music educator—became a household name, using television to invite millions of young people into the world of classical music. In celebration of his 100th birthday, the New World Symphony welcomes his daughter Jamie as host for an all-Bernstein concert featuring orchestral hits from his Broadway shows West Side Story, Candide, On the Town, Fancy Free and more. Concerts for Kids are designed with the young ones—ages four to nine—in mind. Come early and meet the NWS Fellows at the instrument petting zoo. The performances of Bernstein's Birthday Bash will be sensory-friendly. We welcome children with Sensory Processing Disorders and Autism Spectrum Disorders to experience the concert live in the hall. Noise-reduction headsets and a quiet room will be available.
