Join the Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra (SJMO) Big Band for a centennial celebration of Leonard Bernstein at the National Museum of American History!

Leonard Bernstein’s musical contributions span across the musical landscape. As a conductor for the New York Philharmonic Orchestra, he ranks among the world’s most respected. As a composer, his works have crossed the boundaries of choral, symphonic, movie score, Broadway, chamber, and jazz. As an educator, Bernstein’s “young peoples” concerts have reached legendary status, combining musical performance with concert lectures.

To celebrate Leonard Bernstein’s centennial, the SJMO has commissioned a series of new arrangements of selected works by the master himself, including his “Chichester Psalms” and “The Great Lover Displays.”
