Lincoln Memorial Ceremony Video
The ceremony last week in Louisville couldn’t have been scripted better: After a cloudy, misty day, the sun broke through just 15 minutes before the ceremony began, and ‘Fanfare for the Common Man’ accompanied a beautiful sunset on the Ohio: Go to 2:00 in this video here.
Ed Hamilton’s beautiful sculpture and bas-reliefs of Lincoln were unveiled, and I introduced the band’s performance of Copland’s ‘Variations on a Shaker Melody.’
Finally, the band performed Copland’s ‘Lincoln Portrait,’ and I provided the narration. Video is here
And the Courier-Journal’s piece the next day is here
I’m honored to have been included in that company, in that place, for that purpose.
