Assistant Professor of Music Ryan Raul Bañagale ’00 organized “Leonard Bernstein at 100,” a three-day symposium on the CC campus held in conjunction with a month-long series of events in Colorado Springs honoring Bernstein’s centenary. A highlight of the symposium was the opening night event, featuring a conversation between Bañagale and Jamie Bernstein, the eldest daughter of the legendary composer, conductor, and performer. Said Bernstein of her father’s liberal arts experience, “He was so viscerally curious about everything that he just loved that environment. He loved when you could connect things that you didn’t think could be connected.” She added, “For him, teaching and learning were one continuous circuitry. He was so curious about everything.”
