Symphony Tacoma Voices
Geoffrey Boers, director

Music critic Donal Henahan called Leonard Bernstein “one of the most prodigiously talented and successful musicians in American history.” Known to friends and fans as “Lenny,” he was an accomplished composer, conductor, pianist, and humanitarian. In observance of the international Bernstein at 100 celebration, Symphony Tacoma presents works from this great personality known for his message of understanding and hope–nowhere better demonstrated than in his score to West Side Story. The Symphony Tacoma Voices and a cast of 7 stellar vocal soloists will join the Orchestra for this unforgettable and moving performance.  To read the program notes for this concert, click here.  To listen to Backstage Pass Episode IV, Executive Director Andy Buelow’s podcast interview with Music Director Sarah Ioannides–musical samples included–click on the graphic below:
