In honor of Leonard Bernstein’s 100th birthday, the Philadelphia Orchestra presents the music of West Side Story. The Romeo-and-Juliet story follows Maria and Tony, two star-crossed lovers from different worlds trying desperately to be together against the odds. A cast of Broadway vocalists accompanies the orchestra on some of musical theater’s greatest one-word-named tunes including “Maria,” “Tonight” and “Somewhere.”
