National Museum of American Jewish History Trip

National Museum of American Jewish History Trip

See the Leonard Bernstein: "The Power of Music" exhibit and Explore how and when Jews immigrated to America, the choices they faced, the challenges they confronted, and the ways in which they shaped, and were shaped by, their American home.

Wednesday, March 21, 2018    $105.00 per person

 

Your admission covers two wonderful exhibits.  The core exhibit (docent lead) & Leonard Bernstein: The Power of Music, organized by NMAJH, will celebrate the centennial birthday of one of the 20th century’s most influential cultural figures, who personified classical music and produced a rich repertoire of original compositions for orchestra and the theater. Audiences may be familiar with many of Bernstein’s works, notably West Side Story, but not necessarily how he grappled with his own religious, political, and sexual identity, or how he responded to the political and social crises of his day. Visitors will find an individual who expressed the restlessness, anxiety, fear, and hope of an American Jew living through World War II and the Holocaust, Vietnam, and turbulent social change – what Bernstein referred to as his “search for a solution to the 20th century crisis of faith.” The exhibition will feature one of a kind historic artifacts, all brought to life through immersive film, sound installations, and interactive media.

Boxed lunch included.
