Weekend Screenings: Leonard Bernstein Centennial Celebration
The Paley Center for Media pays tribute to the extraordinary legacy of Leonard Bernstein with Sunday screenings of select rare television broadcasts.
As part of the Bernstein at 100 international celebration of the legendary American composer and conductor―whose televised series of Young People’s Concerts introduced millions of children to the joys of classical music―the Paley Center screens a selection of historic broadcasts every Sunday in August, including Bernstein’s television conducting debut and other rarities (many of which are not available commercially). Screenings are free and open to the public.
