Faculty and students from the University of Michigan, New York University, and Harvard University are collaborating on a cross-campus initiative to archive stories of audience members who experienced Leonard Bernstein’s Young People’s Concerts as children.

If you experienced Leonard Bernstein’s Young Peoples’ Concerts in your youth, either live or on television, we invite you to participate in an interview regarding the impact these events had on your musical life. The University of Michigan’s “Music in the U.S.” course is joining forces with the New York Philharmonic Archives for this oral history project, and interviews will be held in both New York City and Ann Arbor.

If interested, please email Professor Jessica Getman at jgetman@umich.edu; interviews will be scheduled around the weekend of the New York Philharmonic’s residency in Ann Arbor, November 17–19, 2017.
