Leonard Bernstein Festival of the Creative Arts

Program April 26, 2022 - May 4, 2022

The annual Leonard Bernstein Festival of the Creative Arts celebrates the abundant creativity of Brandeis students, faculty, and staff, joined by distinguished guest artists. This year's festival theme is buoyancy, recognizing the ability of the arts to lift us to a place where we can take a second look at the world we live in. Through the arts, we find resilience, resistance, and renewal. We may find ourselves suspended in midair, riding a wave, or floating calmly over the signs of growth below. 

Join us for a week-long celebration of the arts with special events, concerts, plays, and exhibitions on campus and online! 





Founded in 1952 by Leonard Bernstein to celebrate the first graduating class of Brandeis, the Festival of the Arts is a campus-wide event overseen by the Arts Engagement staff of the Division of Creative Arts. It is made possible by the generous support of Elaine Reuben ’63, the Mass Cultural Council, and the Aaron Foundation Visiting Artist Fund for Theater, Music, and Fine Arts.
