Orchestra marks Bernstein Centennial – one more time

Big, double program this weekend
In the middle of worldwide Leonard Bernstein celebrations, Zachary Woolfe of The New York Times wrote on Aug. 23 that there probably will never be another Bernstein again, especially as high culture keeps “drifting farther from the mainstream. When he died, in 1990, he left us a charge to listen to music, of all kinds, with endless enthusiasm; to devote ourselves to both the creation of new work and the revival of old; to make every facet of culture accessible to all.”
