Song Of The Day – 1/9/11

“Prologue” from “West Side Story”

Originally it was to be titled “East Side Story” and center around the romance of a Catholic girl and a Jewish boy until it was reconfigured into the story we’ve all come to know and love. The high point of Leonard Bernstein’s Broadway career as far as I’m concerned…and he was working on the score to this show and the score to “Candide” at the same time!
