Our name pays homage to Leonard Bernstein, one of the greatest composers of the 20th century. Bernstein famously gave us West Side Story and remains a pioneer of inspiring a love of music in young people. 

Through his televised ‘Young People’s Concerts’, this remarkable composer, nicknamed the Citizen Artist, was able to make classical music accessible to all. From 1958-1972, his productions were regularly broadcast to the living rooms of all Americans, of all ages and from all walks of life.


"...Citizen Artists Kids is a happy demonstration of this deep and meaningful connection to my father's legacy..."
