My wife and I loved this latest Hershey Felder creation.
We very much enjoy his bringing these musical icons to life.
Like all the famous people he has profiled, this was really
well done.

The performance exceeded my expectations. By the standing ovation and cheering at the end of the performance, I think the rest of the audience felt the same way.

Read the rave reviews Goldstar members gave this show in San Diego earlier this year.


Hershey Felder in Maestro: The Art of Leonard Bernstein, is a new work from the creators of George Gershwin Alone, Monsieur Chopin and_ Beethoven, As I Knew Him_. With a story spanning the entire 20th century, Leonard Bernstein, America’s greatest musician, broke through every artistic ceiling possible to become the world’s musical ambassador.

Hershey is known to Chicago audiences for his 70 record-breaking weeks at the Royal George with his George Gershwin Alone and the world premiere of Monsieur Chopin. His annual appearances at the Ravinia Festival have become a Chicagoland tradition.

Conductor, composer, pianist, author, teacher, librettist, television star … for Leonard Bernstein boundaries simply did not exist. Join us on this fascinating journey as Hershey Felder brings the composer of West Side Story, Candide, Mass and more to life.
