Leonard Bernstein Celebration


Past Event

Hollywood Bowl

Conductor Gustavo Dudamel makes his first major appearance of the summer season at the Hollywood Bowl, leading the L.A. Philharmonic in a program of music by Leonard Bernstein as part of the orchestra's yearlong celebration of the centenary of the composer's birth. Bolstered by L.A. Phil clarinetist Boris Allakhverdyan and cellist Edgar Moreau, Dudamel brings to life Bernstein's sumptuous instrumental passages, such as the Three Meditations from Mass, which combine classical formalism with a jazzy immediacy. The concert is sparked further with appearances by star Broadway vocalists Brian Stokes Mitchell (Kiss Me, Kate) and irrepressible fireball Sutton Foster (Thoroughly Modern Millie, The Drowsy Chaperone), who imbue witty, tuneful selections from On the Town and Wonderful Town with considerable charisma and charm.
