Jewish Film Composers

August 9 @ 1:30 pm - 2:45 pm

During August, Ira Miller will feature three Jewish Film composers; Leonard Bernstein, Bernard Herrmann, and Elmer Bernstein.  They were three of America’s greatest film composers during the middle of the 20th Century. Leonard Bernstein found a way to infuse elements of jazz with a Jewish conscience into his classical, stage, and film work. Bernard Herrmann forever changed how composers utilized instrumental coloring to generate adventure and suspense in their work. With an ability to write for Westerns, comedy, & drama, Elmer Bernstein is considered one of the pioneers of the American film score.
