Aiken Symphony Orchestra presents Bernstein Centenary
September 15, 2018
Few composers capture their time and become the iconic voice of their age like Leonard Bernstein. For that reason, Aiken Symphony Orchestra presents Bernstein Centenary. Celebrate worldwide “Leonard Bernstein at 100”, the 100th birthday of Leonard Bernstein. Certainly, the composer, conductor, educator, musician, cultural ambassador and humanitarian. The Orchestra pays homage to the man who gave us the music of West Side Story, On the Town, and Candide.
In an era when some composers waged an assault on jazz, George Gershwin’s Piano Concerto in F Major took the classical music world by storm. Pianist Xiayin wang, an artist of keen musicality and sweeping virtuosity, performs the concerto. She has made numerous celebrated recordings. Similarly, performed throughout the world. From New York’s Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center to music centers in South America, Europe, and Asia.
