Bloomingdale School of Music (BSM) is pleased to present A Jazz Tribute to Leonard Bernstein as part of Leonard Bernstein at 100, the global celebration of one of the greatest musicians of the 20th century on Friday, June 1st at 7:00 pm. This free concert led by BSM faculty member pianist Zach Lapidus (above), and guest artists bassist Peter Brendler and drummer Aaron Seeber will be held at the school located at 323 West 108th Street. Seating is limited.
Join BSM piano faculty member Zach Lapidus as he performs jazz re-imaginings of Leonard Bernstein’s music. Performing adaptations of Bernstein’s songs in an improvisational context with arrangements by the members of the band, the trio reinterprets them through a different stylistic lens. The program will demonstrate the ways that jazz has evolved since these works were originally composed.
