Glasgow Orchestral Society presents Bernstein’s America

Glasgow Orchestral Society presents Bernstein’s America will be coming to Paisley’s Town Hall on the 18th of March.

The event will be celebrating 100 years of American composer Leonard Bernstein with a concert at Paisley Town Hall.

He was one of the few composers that captured his time and found his “voice” in the early 1940s. Bernstein projected his sound from World War II to ever-changing Europe which saw the fall of the Berlin Wall and Soviet communism.

The composer once said: “Why do so many of us try to explain the beauty of music, thus depriving it of its mystery?”

An evening not to forget with beautiful classics being played as; Overture Candide, Symphonic Dances from West Side Story, Glitter and Be Gay -singer Nia Coleman, Samuel Barber’s Adagio for Strings and George Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue- pianist Derrek Barron.

Show commences at 7.30 pm and tickets cost £10 per person.
