Alexander Bernstein Artful Learning Podcast
Arts advocacy takes many forms. In this episode of the Artful Learning podcast, we hear from Alexander Bernstein, president of Artful Learning, and Vice President and Treasurer of The Leonard Bernstein Office.
Alex has long championed arts-infused instruction in schools from Florida to Oregon. He comes to the cause naturally; the son of legendary composer, conductor, educator and humanitarian Leonard Bernstein, Alex is active in extending his father’s legacy, sharing responsibility with his sisters Jamie and Nina in introducing a new generation to extraordinary, wide-ranging contributions across music and related disciplines through public speaking, advocacy and multiple media platforms.
The podcast touches on the state of arts in education, the pandemic’s challenges for musicians, centennial homages to Bernstein including over 6,000 events worldwide, and upcoming projects spearheaded by Steven Spielberg and Bradley Cooper.
