Plainfield Symphony's 'Bernstein on Broadway' Saturday

The dashing and energetic Leonard Bernstein
composed for Broadway as well as the concert hall.

The Plainfield Symphony expects to pack them in for Saturday night's "Bernstein on Broadway" concert.

Under the baton of music director Charles Prince and with special guest Jamie Bernstein, the evening will feature symphonic dances and vocal selections from West Side Story, On The Town, Candide and Wonderful Town.

A large crowd from New York comes out for these Bernstein extravaganzas, so locals should plan on arriving in good time for the concert.

An added feature will be a post-concert gala reception at the home of John Stewart and Craig Bowman, 308 West 8th Street. The reception will feature catered hors d'oeuvres and an open bar. Proceeds will benefit the Plainfield Symphony.

The Plainfield Symphony performs at Crescent Avenue Presbyterian Church, Watchung Avenue at East 7th Street. Performances begin at 7:00 PM sharp. Tickets: $50/Reserved, $30/General admission, $20/Seniors/Students; under 12 free. Visit the PSO website:

The After-Party is a separate event, $50 per person. Payment can be made at the door.
