Bernstein – 1600 Pennsylvania Ave. – To Make Us Proud (Finale) (by Romanov76110)

Bernstein and Lerner did not close their musical 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue with the disillusionment of “American Dreaming.” Instead, the actors come to realize that they love America despite its many flaws and challenges, and sing of the need for love to be the basis of America’s pride. This lovely finale later resurfaced as Bernstein’s “Olympic Hymn”.
