Concert Information

Led by Teddy Abrams—the dynamic young music director of the Louisville Orchestra behind The Order of Nature with Jim James—“Bernstein on Broadway” will lift open the music that made Lenny a name-brand icon, from West Side Story to Candide and On the Town, and that inspired him from outside the orchestra world.
