Black Tie International:
Bernstein Meets Broadway

Bernstein Meets Broadway
Collaborative Art in a Time of War


Author Carol J. Oja, Conductor Judith Clurman, Essential Voices USA

Billie Allen, Jamie Bernstein and Phyllis Newman 


SEPTEMBER 15 at 7:00 PM.

Barnes & Noble 


Celebrate the publication of Bernstein Meets Broadway: Collaborative Art in a Time of War (Oxford University Press) at Barnes and Noble, 86th Street & Lexington Avenue, New York City, on Monday September 15, 2014 at 7PM. 


Author Carol J. Oja, Harvard University’s William Powell Mason Professor of Music and American Studies and the New York Philharmonic’s Leonard Bernstein Scholar-in-Residence, will be on hand to sign copies of her book and lead an exciting panel of distinguished artists. She will be joined by music director Judith Clurman and members of Essential Voices USA, special guests Billie Allen, Jamie Bernstein, Phyllis Newman, singers Diana Rose Becker, Arlo Hill, Daniel Schwait, Jorell Williams and pianist Kurt Crowley.  Selections from the Leonard Bernstein (music), Betty Comden & Adolph Green (lyrics) musical On The Town will be performed. The audience will be invited to sing-along. There is no admission fee.


When Leonard Bernstein first arrived in New York City, he was an unknown artist working with other brilliant twenty somethings, notably Jerome Robbins, Betty Comden, and Adolph Green. By the end of the 1940s, these artists were world famous. In Bernstein Meets Broadway: Collaborative Art in a Time of War, award-winning author Carol J. Oja examines the early days of Bernstein's career during World War II, centering around the debut in 1944 of the Broadway musical On the Town and the ballet Fancy Free. Bernstein and his visionary friends focused on urban contemporary life and popular culture, featuring as heroes the itinerant sailors who bore the brunt of military service. They were provocative both artistically and politically. In an era of race riots and Japanese internment camps, they featured African American performers and a Japanese American ballerina, staging a model of racial integration. Rather than accepting traditional distinctions between high and low art, Bernstein's music was wide-open, inspired by everything from opera and jazz to cartoons. Oja shapes a wide-ranging cultural history that captures a tumultuous moment in time


When Bernstein, Comden, Green, and Robbins created On the Town in 1944, they were twenty-somethings who ended up as BFF’s. Their audacious talent was breathtaking. The first production of On the Town—appearing towards the end of World War II—marked an important moment in the long march for civil rights in performance.”              --Carol Oja


Carol J Oja and I co-directed Harvard University's landmark Leonard Bernstein: Boston to Broadway Festival. I am happy to be collaborating with her again and thrilled to celebrate the publication of her wonderful book.      --Judith Clurman
