Leonard Bernstein: Selections from West Side Story

Jacques Offenbach: Entr'acte et Barcarolle from Les contes d'Hoffmann

Georges Bizet: Carmen Suite No. 1

Howard Hanson: Symphony No. 2 ‘Romantic’



Music has an amazing way of evoking emotion to all human beings. Music is powerful and elicits memories, feelings of happiness, angst, thrill, sadness and of course LOVE!  Join us for an afternoon of music based on romance, romantic music and composers from the romantic period. From the music of ill-fated lovers in West Side Story to the free-flowing music of Hanson’s Romantic symphony, this music will definitely hit a chord and warm your heart!

Fun Facts:

Leonard Bernstein was the first American-born conductor to conduct a major American symphony orchestra, the New York Philharmonic.

Hanson’s Romantic symphony was used in the closing credits of the movie Alien without Hanson’s permission. While Hanson considered legal action, he changed his mind when he realized the new interest the movie brought to his music.

Research suggests that musical memory can survive long after other forms of memory have disappeared.

Music is used to affect consumer behavior and an individual’s perception of time!

The Tales of Hoffman was set to open in Paris in 1877 but this was canceled due to budget cutbacks at the theater set to debut the opera. Offenbach continued to work on the opera, but died in 1880, while the production was still in rehearsal, leaving the score unfinished.
