Leonard Bernstein

We've been watching some of Leonard Bernstein's "Young People's Concerts" over dinner--Sara found them on DVD at the library. His history on the "What is American Music?" episode that we saw tonight seems a little suspect--why does the "we" he keeps referring to as making up America always mean just white people, and how does jazz spring out of nowhere?--but other than that they're well done, and have lots of fun musical tidbits.

I'm mostly over my cold, but still sniffling.
