He was a universally admired conductor, composer, pianist, writer, teacher, television personality and humanitarian. His name was Leonard Bernstein, but many of his friends and colleagues knew him simply as Lenny – a man filled with a love of music, and a need to share his joy with everyone. Generations of Americans were inspired by his passion and his knowledge, be they school-age kids in the ’60s watching his “Young People’s Concerts” on TV or scholars attending his Harvard Lectures in the ’70s. This year, the world celebrates what would have been his 100th birthday in concerts of his music. We’ll do the same in this Active Minds program that will sample his greatest hits (“West Side Story,” in particular) and some lesser-known works.
