NEC Philharmonia’s program includes Bernstein’s Divertimento, a work written for the Boston Symphony Orchestra, and Symphony No. 2 by Carl Nielsen, a composer virtually unknown in America before Bernstein became his passionate advocate.
NEC CELEBRATES LEONARD BERNSTEIN
NEC invites you to join us in celebrating the 100th birthday of Leonard Bernstein—Boston native, NEC Prep alumnus, and one of America’s greatest 20th-century composers, conductors, and educators.
Throughout the fall, NEC College and Prep students perform music by Bernstein, as well as composers who inspired him and works by his contemporaries.
