Join us ACFL&MH’s for a Carnegie Carnegie tradition – Aaron Copland’s beloved symphonic work, Lincoln Portrait.
Renowned NFL player, veteran, actor and speaker Rocky Bleier will narrate the Copland piece. James Gourlay, well known to Pittsburgh audiences as the Music Director of River City Brass Band, will lead Duquesne University’s Wind Symphony.
Aaron Copland composed Lincoln Portrait in 1942, during the dark, frightening years of World War II. The orchestra score incorporates some of Lincoln’s most gripping oratory, with the narrator speaking over the music.
A dessert and coffee reception in the Lincoln Gallery follows the performance.
