Rhode Island Philharmonic Orchestra presents:
Bernstein on Broadway: Glitter and be Gala!
Composer, conductor, pianist, teacher, thinker and adventurous spirit, Leonard Bernstein transformed the way Americans and people everywhere hear and appreciate music. Bernstein's successes as a composer ranged from the Broadway stage—West Side Story, On the Town, Wonderful Town and Candide—to concert halls all over the world, where his orchestral and choral music continues to thrive.
In commemoration of what would have been Bernstein's 100th birthday, conductor Teddy Abrams and Broadway singer and recording artist Morgan James have created a glittering orchestral program celebrating the best of Bernstein’s timeless Broadway compositions.
New York-based soul singer, songwriter, and Broadway chanteuse Morgan James casts a crazy, cool spell with a powerhouse voice, theatrical swing, and a soulful poise.
