Through his entertaining concert presentations, commentaries on NPR’s Performance Today and PBS NewsHour, books and CDs, Rob Kapilow brings the joy and wonder of classical music – and unravels some of its mysteries – to audiences of all ages and backgrounds.
Leonard Bernstein was perhaps the greatest musical polymath of the 20th century and managed to achieve staggering success in both the classical music world as well as on Broadway. In On the Town (“I Can Cook Too”), Wonderful Town (“A Little Bit in Love”) and West Side Story (“Something’s Coming,” “Maria,” “Tonight”) Bernstein created three hit Broadway shows that opened new horizons and helped set a standard that redefined what was possible for musical theater. Join Rob Kapilow and singers for an illuminating evening of performance and discussion that looks at how a great classical composer transformed the world of the Broadway musical.
“[Rob Kapilow] leaps into the void dividing music analysis from appreciation and fills it with exhilarating details and sensations.” – The New York Times
