Featuring Bernstein's Chichester Psalms and talk "Studying with Bernstein" by Cem Mansur

Robin Walker, ICS Music Director

Leonard Bernstein (25 August 1918 – 14 October 1990) was a world renowned musician throughout his entire adult life. He served as Music Director of the New York Philharmonic and conducted the world's major orchestras, recording hundreds of performances. His books and the televised Young People's Concerts with the New York Philharmonic established him as a leading educator.

Ipswich Choral Society President, Turkish conductor Cem Mansur, studied with Leonard Bernstein at the Los Angeles Philharmonic Institute. Cem has gone on to work with major orchestras and opera houses across the world. Cem will speak about studying with Leonard Bernstein after the interval, inteviewed by Ipswich Choral Society Vice-President Stevie Wishart who is a composer and performer.

Ipswich Choral Society will also be performing settings of two psalms ‘The voice of melody’ and ‘Idols’ by British-French-Israeli composer Nimrod Borenstein, whose music is widely performed throughout Europe, the USA, Canada, Australia and Japan. The BBC Philharmonic Orchestra recently performed the world premiere of his second Cello Concerto.
