Leonard Bernstein Festival of the Creative Arts

Leonard Bernstein Festival of the Creative Arts
415 South Street

The Leonard Bernstein Festival of the Creative Arts welcomes and encourages the participation of people of all communities, generations and life experiences. We value a diversity of lived experiences and perspectives and recognize that our experiences and perspectives are shaped by multiple and intersecting social identities.

We encourage an exchange of learning among faculty, practitioners, students, staff and audience members. We support continuous reflection and learning about the arts.

Founded in 1952 by the legendary American composer and Brandeis faculty member Leonard Bernstein, the first festival was dedicated to the belief that "the art of an era is a reflection of the society in which it is produced, and through creative endeavors the thoughts and expression which characterize each generation are revealed and transformed."
