The YOSA Philharmonic marks the 100th anniversary of Leonard Bernstein’s birth with irresistible rhythms and memorable tunes from the ballet Fancy Free and the musical West Side Story, plus beautiful music by his friend Ned Rorem and his protégé Daron Hagen. Cosmé McMoon, who grew up in San Antonio, achieved fame in 1930s New York as piano accompanist for the legendary diva Florence Foster Jenkins, and YOSA will present the world premiere of his colorful Rondo Espagnol, nearly 80 years after he wrote it.
