Brad Keimach and Leonard Bernstein at Tanglewood

Conducting Beethoven's Fidelio at Carnegie Hall

"Conductor Keimach has mentored a fine orchestra. Like his own teacher, Leonard Bernstein, Keimach dances like a dervish on the podium: now swooning, now alight with passion. His contagious energy definitely inspired most brilliant playing from the GYO."
  - Ted Ayala, Crescenta Valley Weekly, 2011
