May 16th, 1:30 pm 

Leonard Bernstein was the most gifted, famous, popular and successful musician produced by America. He was a virtuoso pianist and conductor, a composer of music ranging from Broadway musicals to the classical repertory, an educator, a lecturer, an author and a TV personality. There was very little he couldn’t do extremely well. 2018 is the centenary of Bernstein’s birth and it is a good time to celebrate this American treasure. On Wednesday, May 16 at 1:30 p.m.

at the Essex Library, Music Historian Jeffrey Engel will delight the audience with tales from Bernstein’s fascinating life and play film and musical excerpts from some of his classic works.

Jeffrey Engel, adjunct professor at the University of Connecticut in Torrington, is a music historian and orchestral cellist who trained in Paris and Austria before returning to the U.S. to teach. He was selected as one of the 50 most influential people in Litchfield County, Connecticut by Litchfield Magazine in 2010.


This talk is free and open to the public. For more information, please call the Essex Library at 860-767-1560. The Essex Library is located at 33 West Avenue in Essex.
