Join us to celebrate the unfettered musical genius of Leonard Bernstein with some of his most iconic, captivating music, 100 years to the day since the birth of the great composer, conductor, pianist and educator.

Outstanding Scottish violinist Nicola Benedetti is the soloist in Bernstein’s deeply lyrical Serenade, a moving meditation on the power of love.

Alongside witty birthday tributes to Bernstein from Berio, Corigliano and Williams, Marin Alsop concludes the concert with unforgettable melodies –  including ‘Maria’, ‘Somewhere’, ‘New York, New York’ and more – from two of Bernstein’s greatest musicals, West Side Story and On the Town.
