Bernstein at Harvard; Central Square weekend
Harvard University’s Music Department and the Office for the Arts celebrated Leonard Bernstein’s work last weekend with “Boston to Broadway,” a festive symposium surrounded by exhibitions and concerts. The wide-angle prospect of the event could have landed almost anywhere in the life of the musical prodigy who graduated cum laude from Harvard in the Class of 1939. The three symposium sessions I attended concentrated on two seminal theater works created by Bernstein and Jerome Robbins, Fancy Free (1944) and West Side Story (1957).
