Details:Heritage Chorale Fall Concert- Leonard Bernstein: A Centennial Celebration. Bernstein’s masterpieces illuminate the genius of this remarkable musician, composer, and educator. Witness their drama and beauty on November 18 in Southborough as the Heritage Chorale presents selections from his extraordinary Mass, his landmark Broadway musical West Side Story, music from two lesser known works – "My House" from a 1950 adaptation of J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan and "Take Care of This House" from the 1976 Bernstein and Lerner Broadway musical 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue – and “Make Our Garden Grow” from his well-known operetta Candide. Tickets and info now available at heritagechorale.org.

Bernstein wrote Mass at the request of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis for the September 1971 inauguration of the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts in Washington, D.C. Though Jewish by birth, he chose the Roman Catholic Mass for the context of this 110 minute musical event, transforming a 400-year rite “into a tense, dramatic dialog with music and lyrics of the 20th century vernacular, using this dialectic to explore the crisis in faith and cultural breakdown of the post-Kennedy era.”

Realizing that help was needed to meet his deadline for this ambitious undertaking, Bernstein recruited lyricist and composer, Stephen Schwartz (Godspell and Pippin) to help with the lyrics. Their joint vision was for a fully staged, dramatic pageant. In its Centennial Celebration program, the Chorale will present Doreen Rao’s 40 minute adaptation of Mass for soloists and chorus.

The November concert will also feature a 20-minute Choral Suite of West Side Story, including “Something's Coming”, “Tonight”, “Maria”, “One Hand, One Heart”, “I Feel Pretty”, “Cool”, “America”, and “Somewhere.” This impressive list of unforgettable songs is only part of the reason that West Side Story has made such a lasting impression. Musical theater audiences not only bonded with its music, but also with its consideration of the power of love to overcome class and racial prejudice.

The stage production — a collaboration among Bernstein, Jerome Robbins (conception and choreography), Arthur Laurents (book), and Stephen Sondheim (lyrics) — opened at the National Theater, Washington D.C. on August 12, 1957. Its Broadway opening was on September 26, 1957 at the Winter Garden Theatre. The film, West Side Story, earned ten Oscars and the Academy Award for Best Picture of 1961.

The Heritage Chorale, conducted by renowned Boston-area music director John Finney, is a nonprofit organization of accomplished singers dedicated to performing high quality choral music. We are committed to standards of excellence in our rehearsals and performances, and seek to inspire in ourselves and our Metrowest audience a greater love of music and community.
