Review from w

Although it was a little slow in places, I really enjoyed the multi-medium aspect of this production. Had the orchestra been visible to the audience
it would have greatly enhanced the program.

More Information


He was born in a mill town on the outskirts of Boston, yet he became one of the most celebrated musicians in modern history. He was known primarily as a composer and conductor, yet he also received the television industry’s most prestigious honor, the Emmy Award, on 11 occasions. And although his work has long been revered by the sage and wizened luminaries of his profession, his most treasured gifts may well have been those he bestowed upon the youth of the world.

His name was Leonard Bernstein. 

The Towne Singers, La Canada’s internationally acclaimed chorus, will celebrate the life and music of Leonard Bernstein (West Side Story, Candide) with a program entitled “Bernstein Story.” The program will also mark the inaugural appearance of the Towne Singers’ new musical director, Dr. Mark Aaron Humphrey, who joined the group in January 2007. Humphrey feels that “this unique journey through the life of Bernstein will be unlike any concert people have experienced, with a combination of choral and orchestral music, dance, and film.” 

In addition, the show will feature dancers from the Mojalet Dance Collective.
