If there is a person, who is a symbol of "crossover" style in music, then it is legendary Leonard Bernstein, who implemented parts of jazz, Broadway sound, gospel or mass in his compositions. He did not differentiate between "classical" and "popular" music, but between "good" and "bad" music. Bernstein was a style synthetic and an eclectic: he did not follow some artistic branching.

Leonard Bernstein became known also through his TV shows about popularisation of the (classical) music and thanks to his indisputable charisma. Those programs got many awards (i.e. 11 Emmy) and made him a TV star and one of the most iconic cultural personalities of USA in sixties.
It was Leonard Bernstein, who brought many people to listen to the classical music.
