Google is celebrating Leonard Bernstein's 100th birthday with a colorful Google Doodle of the legendary composer-conductor.
Overseen by art lead Lydia Nichols and motion designer Stan Cameron, Saturday's (Aug. 25) Doodle includes a lively 45-second animated video clip of Bernstein's most iconic work, the score to West Side Story.
Bernstein was born to Russian-Jewish immigrant parents in Lawrence, Massachusetts, on Aug. 25, 1918. His musical interest sparked at age 10 when his family received an upright piano. Bernstein's talent and passion later earned him a spot as the youngest conductor to lead the New York Philharmonic Symphony Orchestra.
