Even though his father refused to pay for his lessons, Leonard raised the money himself. His father wanted him to work for the family business distributing beauty products, but Leonard chose instead to pursue his love of music, going on to study Music Theory at Harvard and at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia. “In 1940 he was invited to study at the Boston Symphony’s Summer Orchestra Institute where he met famous … [Read more...] about Leonard Bernstein celebrated in his centenary year.
