About the Program

Celebrate Leonard Bernstein’s 100th birthday with the band Paradigm Brass, playing a selection of Bernstein classics.

Paradigm Brass began playing classical music on the streets and in subway stations in San Francisco in 2002. But it didn't take long for the band to begin incorporating elements of New Orleans second line tradition, modern jazz, funk, blues, rock & roll, hip-hop, and salsa into their unique sound, one that is decidedly contemporary and urban.
