A gala multi-media cabaret
benefiting Copland House

Monday, October 23rd at 6:00PM
Kaplan Penthouse, Lincoln Center
Rose Building, 165 West 65th Street, New York City

Settle in to the Kaplan Penthouse high atop Lincoln Center for an unforgettable visit with the after-hours maestro, for whom night was a time for creativity and friendship, deep introspection and revelry. The iconic Leonard Bernstein loved to work at all hours, often entertaining friends and guests late into the night, dazzling them with charismatic performances across a wide range of musical styles. Bernstein’s daughter Jamie hosts this multi-media cabaret – an affectionate journey into the personal side of a singularly public figure. With internationally-acclaimed soprano Amy Burton, and celebrated pianists John Musto and Michael Boriskin, this very special evening features music by Aaron Copland, Zez Confrey, Noel Coward, Franz Schubert, Edvard Grieg, along with favorites and rarities by Bernstein, personal stories, and even audio and video clips of the maestro himself. Join us for a magical evening of remarkable music-making, exquisite cuisine, and spectacular views – all benefiting Copland House, the award-winning creative center for American music, whose namesake enjoyed a close personal friendship and devoted professional partnership with Bernstein for over a half-century.
