Monday August 25: SPECIAL: Maestro: The Art of Leonard Bernstein

Summer of 2013 Hershey Felder brought Bay Area audiences to their feet and got them singing with “George Gershwin Alone”. Now the master entertainer and virtuoso pianist is back with his popular and critically acclaimed Hershey Felder as Leonard Bernstein in Maestro, in which he brings one of America’s greatest musical legends to life. Conductor, composer, pianist, author, teacher, librettist, television star, and composer of “West Side Story”, “Candide”, “On the Town”, and “Wonderful Town”, Bernstein become the world’s first serious-music media superstar.
