3:00 PM

Sandra Piques Eddy, mezzo-soprano
David Kravitz, baritone
Wayman Chin, piano
Brian Moll, piano
Metropolitan Opera's Sandra Piques Eddy and baritone David Kravitz team up to celebrate the 100th birthday of Leonard Bernstein in a LiveARTS concert on Sunday November 4th at the Meetinghouse of the First Universalist Society in Franklin, Massachusetts.
Leonard Bernstein
The concert will include selections from the musicals  On the Town, 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and Wonderful Town, as well as music for piano, performed by Wayman Chin and Brian Moll. 
Few composers capture their time and become the iconic voice of their age like Leonard Bernstein. Writing for small ensembles, symphony orchestras, Broadway, film and opera houses, Bernstein projected a simple message of understanding and hope employing both complex and simple forms and styles – yet always sounding like "Bernstein", a voice best known in his score to West Side Story.
Sandra Piques Eddy

Mezzo-soprano Sandra Piques Eddy has performed on the stage of the Metropolitan Opera more than 100 times. A Boston native, Ms. Eddy has sung with the Boston Lyric Opera, New York City Opera, and will perform the title role of Carmen on a Japanese tour with Maestro Seiji Ozawa in the coming year before singing with the Handel and Haydn Society in Boston and the New Zealand Opera.
David Kravitz
