Jamie Bernstein is a writer, narrator, broadcaster, and filmmaker who has transformed a lifetime of loving music into a career of sharing her knowledge and excitement with others. Inspired by her father, Leonard Bernstein, and his lifelong impulse to share and teach, she has devised multiple ways of communicating her own excitement about orchestral music. Beginning 15 years ago with The Bernstein Beat — a family concert about her father’s music modeled after his own groundbreaking Young People’s Concerts with the New York Philharmonic — she designed, wrote, and narrated concerts for worldwide audiences of all ages about the music of Mozart, Copland, Stravinsky, and many others. In Spanish-speaking locations such as Madrid, Havana, and Caracas, she narrates in Spanish thanks to her Chilean-born mother, Felicia Montealegre, who raised her children to be bilingual.
