Before a sumptuous dinner in the sparkling Stanley H. Kaplan Penthouse high atop Lincoln Center, settle in 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 and 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 acclaimed soprano Amy Burton and celebrated pianists John Musto and Michael Boriskin, this very special event features Bernstein's most intimate and favorite music, as well as works by Aaron Copland, Zez Confrey, Noel Coward, Franz Schubert, and Edvard Grieg, along with personal stories, rare photographs of the legendary artist, family, friends, and colleagues, 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, whose namesake enjoyed a close personal friendship and devoted professional partnership with Bernstein for over a half-century.
