This concert is dedicated to the famous European Opera singer Marie Van Gelder (1861-1935). Born in Amsterdam, Marie was a soprano educated at Boston Conservatory. She performed in NYC and Berlin. After 1896 she returned to the Netherlands and she sang and taught in Berlin in 1902 and 1903. Marie specialized in Wagner roles and also sang in oratorios. Later she taught and became the head of the voice department at the Women’s College of Alabama. She died of a heart attack at St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City on 13 Oct 1935 and was buried with her father at Maple Grove. Gerardus Martinus Van Gelder (1829-1878) was a music teacher in Holland and New York City.

Famous Father Girl: A Memoir of Growing Up Bernstein @ virtual

Famous Father Girl: A Memoir of Growing Up Bernstein @ virtual

The composer of West Side Story, chief conductor of the NY Philharmonic, a friend of the powerful, and the life of every party, Leonard Bernstein was an American celebrity. But to his daughter Jamie, Bernstein was above all the compulsive teacher and father who taught his daughter to love the world in all its beauty and complexity.

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. This virtual event is part of our Cultural Arts & Jewish Heritage Speaker Series.
