Join the BSO as we celebrate two luminaries of music history, Leonard Bernstein and Claude Debussy. Their 100th and 150th birthdays are cause to play some of their most memorable works with a word or two from the podium. With a suite from Candide arranged by Charlie Harmon and the evocative La Mer, we will blow out some birthday cake candles in style. In order to round out the festivities, our concertmaster, Michael Sutton, will play the A minor Violin Concerto of J.S. Bach, serving as conductor and soloist.





The Program

Leonard Bernstein – Overture to Candide

Leonard Bernstein, arr. Charlie Harmon – Suite from Candide

Johann Sebastian Bach – Violin Concerto No. 1 in A Minor, BWV 1041
