Eric Garcia leads the Phil in a celebration of Leonard Bernstein's 100th birthday!

We celebrate the iconic and larger-than-life American composer Leonard Bernstein in his centennial year with his cherished Overture to Candide, crackling with energy and tender in tone. Based on sacred texts, Bernstein's three-movement masterpiece Chichester Psalms, which will feature the Boise Phil Master Chorale, showcases Bernstein's signature exuberant rhythms and haunting melodies. Tchaikovsky's dramatic and emotional Symphony No. 5 takes us on a journey through sorrow, courage and triumph.
