Bernstein’s versatility as a composer is brilliantly illustrated in this concert to celebrate the centenary of his birth. The Chichester Psalms include an exuberant setting of ‘O be joyful in the Lord all ye lands’ (Psalm 100) and a gentle Psalm 23, ‘The Lord is my shepherd’, as well as menacing music cut from the score of West Side Story.

Bernstein developed the vibrant Missa Brevis from the incidental music in medieval style he had composed for The Lark, Anouilh’s play about Joan of Arc. Favourite choruses from West Side Story round off the concert.

Ticket prices include a programme and an interval drink.
