It’s an inaugural concert weekend for the ages! In his first performances as Music Director, Louis Langrée and your CSO perform Copland’s Lincoln Portrait, set to multimedia visuals and narrated by Dr. Maya Angelou. Given its world premiere by the CSO in 1942, this iconic work commemorates the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address, as part of a Freedom Week collaboration with the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center and Cincinnati Museum Center. The theatrical and exhilarating On a Wire by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Jennifer Higdon and Beethoven’s beloved Fifth Symphony round out this historic beginning of a new era. Don’t miss it!
