Lincoln Memorial Dedication

Posted on: April 28th, 2009 by wmapother 1 Comment
It was just two hundred short years ago that Abraham Lincoln was born in Hodgenville, Kentucky.  In honor of the bicentennial, my hometown of Louisville commissioned a memorial 
to him for its Waterfront Park, on the banks of the Ohio River.  On June 4 the City will hold a dedication ceremony, and yours truly has been invited to perform the narration for Aaron Copland’s “Lincoln Portrait.”  Memorial and dedication details are here.  Lincoln, Copland, Louisville…Mapother.    Hmmmmm.
