Happy Birthday Columbus!

New Albany Symphony to Celebrate with Lincoln and Copland

As Columbus' 200th birthday celebration kicks into gear, the New Albany Symphony Orchestra kicks it of this weekend at the Jeanne B. McCoy Community Center for the Arts in New Albany. After a rousing overture, Aaron Copland takes center stage as the NASO presents two of his best-known works...A Lincoln Portrait and Appalachian Spring.  My thanks to everyone at the NASO for the opportunity to read the stirring words of Abraham Lincoln as set by Copland.  Come help us kick Columbus' 200th birthday celebration off in style Sunday at 3:00pm! Here's a little Copland to put you in the mood... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XiLTwtuBi-o
