The National Museum of American Jewish History (NMAJH) in Philadelphia invites its members for an afternoon of music by Leonard Bernstein presented as part of Bernstein at 100, a tribute to the maestro. Leonard Bernstein revolutionized music and is renowned for his iconic hits West Side Story, Candide, and On the Town. David Charles Abell, Bernstein’s protégé and Philly native son will conduct this concert featuring Broadway vocalists Lisa Vroman, Alli Mauzey, and Ryan Silverman – plus the 180-voice Philly POPS Festival Chorus!
In addition to the concert, NMAJH’s very own Ivy Weingram take the stage for a conversation about the Museum’s forthcoming special exhibition which she is curating, Leonard Bernstein: The Power of Music.

Tickets are $118 and are for seats in the desirable Orchestra Tiers E & F. Tickets include a complimentary soft-bound copy of Leonard Bernstein: An American Musician by Allen Shaw. All proceeds benefit the Museum and the development of this exhibition.
