Leonard Bernstein was born on August 25, 1918 (102 years ago!) and was one of the most remarkable artists of the 20th Century. One of our favorite works from Bernstein (there are SO many) is one he composed for the violin and chamber orchestra, Serenade - after Plato's Symposium. Enjoy this performance from a few years ago with our dear friend Anne Akiko Meyers.
Meet Julie Hanson, a local actress who has been in several Muny productions as well as on Broadway. We talk about how Julie prepares for an audition and she shares her craziest audition story – a good lesson about never knowing where an opportunity might lead. We discuss how Muny auditions differ, and what happens after you're cast in a show. Julie offers audition advice and we wrap up with "three words that describe The Muny".
