Celebration of Composers’ 2018 Anniversaries: Bernstein, Debussy, and Joplin

Faculty Artist Series: Fen-Fang Chen, artistic director

In any year characterized by hordes of unknown anniversaries, how wonderful to see that we are nevertheless visited by celebrations that are also truly meaningful, such as the 100th anniversaries of composers’ deaths (Claude Debussy and Scott Joplin) and the 100th anniversaries of composers’ births (Leonard Bernstein). This year, will Fen-Fang Chen lead the audience on a delightful journey through a few of these anniversaries, extolling the virtues (and occasionally the imperfections) of those composers. She will be joined by a variety of colleagues, all willing to display the positives – and negatives – of their composers.
