An Evening of Bernstein's Best

  • Boettcher Concert Hall 1000 14th Street Denver, CO, 80202 United States (map)

Teddy Abrams, conductor
Morgan James, vocals

With a style that's at the intersection of opera, music theatre, and jazz; Broadway vocalist Morgan James follows her stunning turn with the Symphony in Denver on July 4, 2015, with a slate of showstoppers and ballads from the one and only Leonard Bernstein. James hand-picked the songs for these three concerts with guest conductor Teddy Abrams, music director for the Louisville Orchestra, and came up with a career-spanning set of numbers from Bernstein's best-known works -- West Side Story and On the Town among them -- alongside selections from less celebrated gems like Mass and 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. The shows promise a deep dive into the varied repertoire of one of the most illustrious American composers and songwriters of all time, paired with James' soaring voice.
