Imagine a bluegrass version of Officer Krupke or a tap dancer joining in on Dance Suite for Brass Quintet. Enjoy an evening of unexpected pairings of Leonard Bernstein’s music and superb, creative musicians. Hosted by Broadway musical director and radio host Seth Rudetsky with a special guest Broadway star, this show is a creative review, unlike any other Bernstein tribute you’ve seen. The program includes jazz pianist Ran Blake, vocalist Dominique Eade, singer-songwriter Vance Gilbert, pianist Don Berman, baritone David Kravetz, the Lonely Heartstring Bluegrass Band, and some other surprises. Experience unique and personal interpretations of some of your favorite—and some lesser known—Bernstein pieces.

The $125 tickets include a preconcert reception at the Capital Grille and one premium-seating concert ticket hosted by the Jewish Arts Collaborative.
