BOSTON IS WHERE LEONARD BERNSTEIN WAS BORN AND BRED. AND IT WAS WITH THE BOSTON SYMPNONY THAT HE GAVE HIS FIRST CONCERT LEADING A PROFESSIONAL ORCHESTRA AND, ALMOST 50 YEARS LATER, HIS LAST. IT WAS WITH THE POPS ON JULY 11, 1941 THAT BERNSTEIN MADE HIS DEBUT WITH A PROFESSIONAL ORCHESTRA. HE WOULD REMAIN CLOSELY IDENTIFIED WITH THE POPS AND THE BOSTON SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA UNTIL HIS DEATH IN 1990. HERE HE BOLDLY SIGNS A COMMEMORATIVE TRIBUTE TO THE 100TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE BOSTON SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA.
LEONARD BERNSTEIN (1918-90) SIGNED COMMEMORATIVE POSTAL COVER, “Leonard Bernstein”, 6.5 x 3.75, postmarked Oct 11, 1980, honoring the 100th anniversary of the Boston Symphony Orchestra, by the American conductor, composer, pianist, music educator, and author. This hand-signed tribute to his beloved Boston Symphony Orchestra is in fine condition and worthy musical find.
