MUSE/IQUE continues its yearlong concert series, MUSIC = POWER with BERNSTEIN AT HEART: Learning is Living. Thursday, August 3 at 7:30 pm at The Huntington Library in San Marino and Sunday, August 6 at 7:30 pm at The Skirball Cultural Center in West Los Angeles.
The MUSE/IQUE ensemble is joined by soprano Anna Schubert, tenor Ashley Faatoalia, and, from the Colburn School, Australian youth violinist James Birch.
Leonard Bernstein’s legendary “Young People’s Concerts” helped define our modern imagination. Four months after the Broadway debut of West Side Story, Leonard Bernstein’s groundbreaking educational series with the New York Philharmonic was delivered to audiences worldwide via television. Inspired by Artistic and Music Director Rachael Worby’s idol, we learn how these famed telecasts became a blueprint for learning and a lesson in the power of knowledge that still resonates today.
Program includes West Side Story “Mambo,” Copland’s Appalachian Spring (“Simple Gifts”); James Taylor’s Fire and Rain (sung by Ashley Faatoalia); Ginestera’s Estancia – Malambo movement; John Lennon – In My Life (sung by Anna Schubert); Mozart – Concerto #4 – movement #1 (performed by Colburn violin soloist James Birch); Bach – Prelude in F minor; On the Town, “Times Square”; and West Side Story Concert Suite No. 1 (“Maria,” “One Hand, One Heart,” “Somewhere,” “Balcony Scene” – sung by Ashley and Anna).
