La Jolla Symphony & Chorus presents Bernstein Centennial Celebrated with Chorus, Orchestra in “Kaddish” Symphony
La Jolla Symphony & Chorus (LJS&C) celebrates Leonard Bernstein’s Centennial in a concert filled with juxtapositions of light and dark on March 16-17. Anchoring the program is Bernstein’s rarely performed Symphony No. 3, subtitled “Kaddish.” Scored for large forces – chorus, large orchestra, children’s choir, soprano soloist and narrator -- the symphony interweaves an ancient Jewish prayer for the dead with text by Bernstein. The program begins with Laurie San Martin’s nights bright days followed by Beethoven’s light-filled Eighth Symphony.
