    “Leonard Bernstein, An American Treasure.”

    Join us on November 6th at 1:00pm as Jeffrey Engel presents the lecture “Leonard Bernstein, An American Treasure.” Bernstein was the most gifted, famous, popular and successful musician produced by America. He was a virtuoso pianist and conductor, a composer of music ranging from Broadway musicals to the classical repertory, an educator, a lecturer, an author and a TV personality. There was very little he couldn’t do extremely well. 2018 is the centenary of Bernstein’s birth and it is a good time to celebrate this American treasure. Mr. Engel has been giving lectures devoted to music history in colleges, libraries, retirement communities and other venues for some twenty years. He believes that such lectures should be entertaining as well as informative. To that end, his explanations are never too technical and he infuses his material with amusing anecdotes and musical illustrations. Since 2004 Mr. Engel has taught at Northwestern Connecticut Community College. He was a contributor to the 2001 edition of the “New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians.” In 2010 he was selected by ‘Litchfield Magazine’ as one of the fifty most influential people in Litchfield County. www.jeffreyengel.net
