Celebrating 100 years of Leonard Bernstein, featuring “Chichester Psalms,” excerpts of his Mass, “Candide,” and more.

Composer Leonard Bernstein is best known for his Broadway shows, especially “West Side Story.” He created the religious “Chichester Psalms” out of dance numbers from musicals that he never completed, fusing Broadway and classical styles. At “A Bernstein Centennial,” Man Choir and Vox Femina will celebrate 100 years of Leonard Bernstein (he was born in 1918) with a chamber version of “Chichester Psalms,” complete with organ. The Chamber Choir performs music by living composers who were heavily influenced by Bernstein, including the Northwest premieres of new works by British composer Tarik O’Regan and American composer Eric Whitacre.
