Santa Maria Philharmonic: Soaring Masterpieces – Fate & Destiny
Passion and power of the 2021-2022 season concludes in dramatic fashion with music by Mozart, Copland, and Brahms.
One of Copland’s most popular pieces, A Lincoln Portrait was commissioned during the beginning of World War II for a program of three new works by American composers. It is a one-movement work with narration made up of quotations which Copland collected from the speeches and letters of President Abraham Lincoln. This performance will be narrated by actor David Selby.
