Programme Note

Developed in 2003, the Orchestral Suite from ‘1600 Pennsylvania Avenue’ is an attractive  medley of the most familiar numbers from the musical – The President Jefferson’s March, Take Care of This House, I Love My Wife, and To Make Us Proud – arranged for a modestly-sized orchestra.  Though the show was not successful, the music has been admired, and reflects Leonard Bernstein at his most witty and charming. 

Press Quotes



"A long overdue renaissance of the melodies I heard adorning the opening in Philadelphia. A meaningful addition to the symphonic repertoire." -- Skitch Henderson
