The Somewhere Project

In celebration of Carnegie Hall’s 125th-anniversary season, the Weill Music Institute presents the Somewhere Project, including a large-scale production of West Side Story, a work that aligns closely with WMI’s mission of supporting music in the community and the world. The performances take place March 4–6, 2016, at the Knockdown Center, a restored factory in Queens, and feature professional artists in solo roles, Jerome Robbins’s classic choreography, and students and community members from around the city on stage.

Marin Alsop, a former protégé of Leonard Bernstein’s and a visionary leader of education projects, conducts the performances, and Amanda Dehnert, nationally renowned theater director, leads the production. Experiencing West Side Story as a celebration of community and music inspires audiences to embrace the vision of New York City as “a place for us.”

    I found this rather overblown, if one gets the drift.
