Bernstein: Music from On the Town
Choral Suite from West Side Story
Wonderful Town (concert performance)
Conductor: Timothy Redmond
Cambridge Philharmonic Orchestra & Chorus
2018 has seen the whole world celebrate the extraordinary talents of Leonard Bernstein, one of the most gifted musicians who ever lived. Between 1942 and 1957 he wrote three wildly successful Broadway shows, all of which are infused with the energy and excitement of the city they portray: New York. The orchestra sets the scene with several toe-tapping numbers from On the Town before the chorus takes centre stage for twenty minutes of unforgettable music from West Side Story. Wonderful Town tells the all-singing, all-dancing story
of Eileen and Ruth, two sisters straight off the bus from Ohio who’ve come to New York to seek their fame and fortune as a writer and actress. But will they make it? Find out as we follow their trials and tribulations – and in the process meet a whole array of crazy characters from 1930s Greenwich Village.
With a brilliant cast, this rare concert performance of Bernstein’s Tony award- winning musical is not to be missed.
