Most people have heard Bernstein's music, even if you don't realize it! He wrote West Side Story which is a very well known musical. He also wrote The Young People's Guide to the Orchestra which we've heard on multiple 2nd grade Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra trips. Bernstein thought that educating young people about music was a very important part of his career, so it is only fitting that he is one of our composer studies! Please take some time to listen on the Classics for Kids site, and I have linked a video to Bernstein conducting some of his own work below.
