Join us all this week as we celebrate 100 years of Leonard Bernstein! We’ll showcase music from Bernstein as conductor, composer or performer every other hour before we ramp it up all day Saturday to celebrate Lenny’s birthday. Don’t miss an all-Bernstein program on Modern Times with Alan Chapman, rare recordings on The Evening Program with Jim Svejda including a celebration with Leonard Bernstein’s daughter Jamie on Friday night, and the unforgettable performance of Beethoven’s 9th, recorded live from the Berlin Wall, Saturday at 7pm.
This week’s Album of the Week also benefits KUSC! Become a member of KUSC for just $10 a month (or $120 all at once) and we will send you this week’s Album of the Week, “The Best of Bernstein.” It’s a special 3-CD set featuring Bernstein the conductor, the composer and the performer, created especially for public radio – not available anywhere else! We only have a limited quantity of these special sets, so when they are gone they are gone! Don’t miss your chance to celebrate one of the greatest American musicians of all time AND support your favorite classical radio station at the same time.
