Mike Lawson • News • August 30, 2018

The Juilliard Orchestra’s 2018-19 season will open with alumna Marin Alsop, music director of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, conducting the Juilliard Orchestra in a Bernstein Centennial Celebration on Saturday, September 29, 2018, at 8 p.m. in Carnegie Hall.

As one of Leonard Bernstein’s best-known pupils, Marin Alsop is central to his centennial global celebrations in 2018. Joining Alsop and the Juilliard Orchestra for Bernstein’s Songfest will be the following Juilliard alumni singers: soprano (TBA); mezzo-sopranos Naomi Louisa O’Connell and Amanda Lynn Bottoms; tenor Paul Appleby; baritone Aubrey Allicock; and bass-baritone Ryan McKinny. The program also features the Bernstein Birthday Bouquet with pieces written by four composers with Juilliard connections: Luciano Berio (former faculty member); faculty member John Corigliano; alumnus John Williams; and former Juilliard president William Schuman with additional variations by former faculty members Leon Kirchner and Jacob Druckman; Lukas Foss; and Toru Takemitsu. Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 5 in D Minor, Op. 47, a Bernstein signature piece, completes the program. 

Tickets at $30 (parquet, first tier, second tier) and $15 (dress circle) are available at juilliard.edu/calendar or at the Carnegie Hall Box Office. Full-time non-Juilliard students with a valid ID may purchase tickets at $15 (parquet, first tier, second tier) and $7.50 (dress circle, balcony), only at the Carnegie Hall Box Office. 

A symposium entitled Bernstein’s Genius: The Maestro as Educator will take place the next day, an afternoon of music, film, conversation, and a book reading featuring Jamie Bernstein, Thomas Cabaniss, Peter Kazaras, Stephen Wadsworth, and Brian Zeger. The symposium will take place on Sunday, September 30, 2018, 3-6p.m. in Paul Hall (155 West 65th Street, 1st Floor). The event is free, and tickets are required. Further details on the symposium will be available at juilliard.edu/calendar
