The Bernstein Memorial Festa was implemented last year for the first time, based on the concept of creating a casual musical atmosphere, in an area centered around the Leonard Bernstein Statue standing in Nakajima Park. This year's implementation will feature pieces by American composers including Bernstein and Gershwin, along with a string of famous opera arias, led by Assistant Conductor Sean Kubota in Kitara's Main Hall.
