Leonard Bernstein is being celebrated throughout 2017-2019 in concerts and performances around the world marking the 100th year of his birth (#BernsteinAt100).
Temple Beth El’s annual Reutlinger Music Concert is proud to be included as an official Leonard Bernstein celebration, featuring Cantor Geoffrey Fine, and concert pianist and University of Puget Sound staff accompanist Jinshil Yi. This free and unusual concert will explore Bernstein’s ability to infuse part of his Jewish n’shamah, or soul, both purposely and even subconsciously into many of his vocal masterpieces.
Familiar songs from West Side Story, Candide, Mass, plus lesser-performed gems will be presented in an informative/performative style.
Seating in the main concert hall is limited. Doors open at 6:15 pm.
