Film with Live Orchestra
Score by Leonard Bernstein
Richard Kaufman, Conductor
New West Symphony
Generously sponsored by Colburn Foundation
VPAC partners with New West Symphony in celebrating the centenary of Leonard Bernstein. Bernstein made one foray into Hollywood with an original film score. On the Waterfront is ranked by the American Film Institute as one of the ten best films of all time, and Marlon Brando’s performance is unforgettable. VPAC presents the 1954 film and Bernstein’s original orchestral composition, performed live by New West Symphony.
