It’s been almost 100 years since the birth of Leonard Bernstein, Jerome Robbins, Ella Fitzgerald, Lena Horne, Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonius Monk, Desi Arnaz and Dean Martin. To celebrate the lasting influence these legendary artists had on American music, the Pocono Mountains Music Festival is proud to present an electrifying evening honoring their incredible legacy.
