A well-known conductor throughout his lifetime, Leonard Bernstein was also a prolific composer. His best-known work, West Side Story, was an instant success and is an excellent representation of Bernsteins ability to bring musical influences from a variety of styles and time periods into his work. Although Candide was not immediately successful, Bernstein later changed the libretto and expanded the work to become an opera, leading it to become a tremendous success. The Lubbock Chorale and soloists will present selections from each of these contrasting shows in a way that will be engaging and informative.
This concert will include an elegant dinner. Tickets must be purchased by Wednesday, February 23, 2022 at 6:00PM
