Celebrating Composer Leonard Bernstein

Posted on: 21 May 2018

The Prebendal School is proud to be supporting this year's Bernstein in Chichester Festival which is marking the strong ties between the composer and the city in his centenary year.

At our Summer Concert, the 1st Orchestra will be playing a medley of songs from Bernstein's West Side Story as a tribute. Premiered on Broadway in 1957, this tale of love and prejudice is inspired by Shakespeare's Romeo & Juliet.
