Jamie Bernstein writer, narrator, broadcaster and filmmaker has transformed a lifetime of loving music into a career of sharing her knowledge and excitement with others.

Inspired by her father Leonard Bernstein’s lifelong impulse to share and teach, Jamie has devised multiple ways of communicating her own excitement about orchestral music. Join Jamie Bernstein as she shares how her book Famous Father Girl - A Memoir of Growing Up Bernstein came to be and her intentions in writing the book. Jamie will share some content of the book with us and briefly talk about her father's centennial in 2018.

In Famous Father Girl, Jamie shares this: "In a deeply intimate and broadly evocative memoir, the eldest daughter of revered composer-conductor Leonard Bernstein offers a rare look at her father on the centennial of his birth." The composer of On the Town and West Side Story, chief conductor of the New York Philharmonic, television star, humanitarian, friend of the powerful and influential, and the life of every party, Leonard Bernstein was an enormous celebrity during one of the headiest periods of American cultural life, as well as the most protean musician in twentieth century America.
