Happy Belated Bernstein Birthday!

Leonard Bernstein would have been 90 years old yesterday. Here he is conducting some of his most beautiful—and Coplandesque—passages, from West Side Story.

Oh my, I haven't tuned in for a while. Thank you for a delightful start to my day! Wish I had read that bit about David Byrne's exhibit...I missed it. But I didn't miss all of the wonderful art over at Governor's Island - how about those bowling pin buddhas???

I missed that artwork, but it sounds right up my alley!
