Description

#DECLASSIFIED
“Bernstein and Social Identity"

Nicholas Brown, Office of the Librarian

Leonard Bernstein had a lifelong passion for literature and poetry, which heavily influenced his compositions like Songfest and West Side Story. Explore Bernstein’s interpretations of American social identity through his settings of poems by poets such as Gertrude Stein and Langston Hughes. Participants will have a chance to see rare source materials and manuscripts from the Leonard Bernstein Collection up close.
