Bernstein: Stage And Screen: City Of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (CBSO), Kim Criswell, University of Birmingham Voices, John Wilson
It’s a helluva town! From the skyscrapers of Manhattan to the docks of Brooklyn, no-one knew New York like Leonard Bernstein knew New York – and with shows like West Side Story, Candide and On the Town he lit up the Broadway stage. The sensational Kim Criswell sings your favourite hits from all those shows and many more, and with John Wilson conducting, you just know it’s gonna swing!
CBSO+ 6.15pm: CBSO Chief Executive Stephen Maddock OBE is joined by John Wilson to mark the 100th anniversary of this all-American composer, conductor, pianist and educator.
Founded in 1920, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra has always had an illustrious career. In fact, the first concert was conducted by Sir Edward Elgar. The orchestra has grown into a 90-piece ensemble with a worldwide reputation.
