Maestro Lenny

 "The point is, art never stopped a war and never got anybody a job. That was never its function. Art cannot change events. But it can change people. It can affect people so that they are changed ... because people are changed by art - enriched, ennobled, encouraged - they then act in a way that may affect the course of events...by the way they vote, they behave, the way they think." - Leonard ‪‎Bernstein‬ (John Gruen interview in Los Angeles Times, December 31, 1972
