AMERICAN MASTER: The Music of Leonard Bernstein Lecturer: Dr. Robert Butts Leonard Bernstein's importance to American music is impossible to calculate or define. His personality and brilliance made him a master in conducting, composing, and educating. He was the first American conductor to be internationally successful and paved the way for American conductors to find positions as artistic directors or guest conductors with orchestras in Vienna, Berlin, London, Milan and elsewhere. His compositions remain standards in both the classical and popular music worlds from his three symphonies and serenade to such works for the Broadway Theater as On The Town, Candide, and West Side Story. His television broadcasts such as The Young People's Concerts remain both entertaining and enlightening. Dr. Robert W. Butts is a widely noted conductor, composer and teacher whose lectures on music history are always a big hit!
