This celebration of the composer's 100th birthday will feature some of his most popular music from West Side Story, On the Waterfront and more, along with his landmark First Symphony.
Come Early for a Sculpture Unveiling
Join us at 7 pm before the Bernstein Centennial Opening Night as we unveil a newly created bronze bust of Giancarlo Guerrero by San Francisco-based sculptor Alicia Ponzio. Festivities will take place in the Main Lobby. Learn more about Ponzio on her website. A very special thank-you to Dr. Zeljko and Tanya Radic, who commissioned the sculpture specifically for Schermerhorn Symphony Center.
Please note that, due to the sculpture unveiling, there will be no Classical Conversations prior to the concert.
