      Chicago, IL

      Saturday, May 10, 2014, 9:00 am

      Leonard Bernstein had a multi-faceted career, from conducting, to piano, to composition. Bernstein is renowned as one of the greatest American musicians. Bill McGlaughlin will draw upon his vast experience to explore the wonders of Bernstein.

      Bill McGlaughlin is a nationally noted radio commentator and has also spent a decade as a professional orchestral musician, music educator, over two decades as a conductor, and a decade as a successful composer. He is the host and music director of the public radio program Exploring Music. Mr. McGlaughlin views the more recent, radio broadcast aspect of his musical career as outreach-- as a way to keep classical music from becoming an increasingly marginalized art form.
