Tickets are limited -- purchase yours today: www.artful.ly/store/events/14738

Lara released a new album two months ago: “Songs for Lenny” in celebration of Leonard Bernstein’s 100th birthday. It’s a combination of the following: piano solos written by Bernstein, especially “anniversaries for piano” (which consists of short movements that were each written for a different person in Bernstein's life); other songs written by Bernstein and stylized for solo piano specifically for this project; and tribute pieces written for Bernstein by other American composers, such as Stephen Sondheim, John Corigliano, Lukas Foss, and several others. Lara will share stories and perspectives on Bernstein and these works throughout the live program.
