Chichester Psalms - Tribute to Leonard Bernstein's Centennial (musical saw)

Tribute to Leonard Bernstein on his centennial , filmed at his grave site at Green-Wood cemetery, Brooklyn. Chichester Psalms (boy soprano segment) by Leonard Bernstein played on musical saw by Natalia 'Saw Lady' Paruz. Film by Shravya Kag. I remember meeting "uncle Lenny" (as he was introduced to us kids) at my friends' birthday parties.

I remember uncle Lenny (as he was introduced to us kids) at my friends’ birthday parties. Smiling and friendly he spoke Hebrew mixed with English. He was the conductor of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra at the time and we were children of its musicians. I’m talking about composer/conductor Leonard Bernstein, who would have celebrated 100 years next month. He inspired us all to go all the way with what we love, to relish and share our enthusiasm with the world.
