For half a century, beginning in the 1940s, Leonard Bernstein was one of the most charismatic presence on the American arts scene. This presentation is a portal to understanding one of America's most colossal, but enigmatic musicians. Karl Middleman, of the Philadelphia Classical Symphony, gives a conductor's perspective on what made Leonard Bernstein great. He also explores Bernstein's engagement with social issues and talks about Bernstein's time in Philadelphia at the Curtis Institute of Music. Video and audio recordings, as well as piano demonstrations, bring Bernstein's story to life.

This program is free and open to the public.  No registration required.

This presentation is a program of the Pennsylvania Humanities Council supported in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities. 


This program is also made possible through a grant from the Haverford Township Civic Council.

"63-64, Small Town, Catholic School, Culture and Ham Radio in the Last Year of Simple Innocence" is a memoir about Norwood and St Gabriel School in the year 1963-64 when the author was in the 8th Grade. Knoblauch relates tales of town, family and school in the early 1960s in the context of the larger culture which was about to explode into a much different world. 
Knoblauch moved with his family to Norwood in 1957, living there until 1972.  The oldest of eight children, his memoir is as much about a large family and extraordinary parents as it is about the culture and politics when Baby Boomers were coming of age. The subject of his talk will be “Why I wrote a book.”  He will also sign copies of the book and answer questions.
