Edgewood Auditorium
575 Osgood Street
North Andover, MA

Izzi Abrams will present a brief course which will focus on the larger than life composer and musician, Leonard Bernstein. As the creator of some of the greatest music of the 20th century including Candide, On the Town, West Side Story, On the Waterfront, symphonies, and choral music, Leonard Bernstein left his mark on contemporary and classical music. He also opened the world of music to many through the televised Young Audiences and Omnibus series which we will be able to view. This three week course will explore the man and his music, his personal and professional life, his successes and his failures. We will also look at the close connection that Bernstein had with Massachusetts, having been raised and educated here and his ongoing involvement with Tanglewood. “Lenny” as he was called by many, left a legacy which will not be forgotten. The class will be enhanced with handouts and audio and visual material.

*This is a multi session class that will be held on 10/18, 11/1 & 11/8.
