Like snapshots in a photo album, each piece allows insight into the fascinating chronicle of the American experience: the life of a 19th century pioneer (Halsey Stevens: The Ballad of William Sycamore), the influence of transcendental thought (Howard Hanson: Song of Democracy), the simple pleasures of a small town parade (Charles Ives: Circus Band), and the tragedies of war and discrimination (David Conte: Elegy for Matthew and Lee Hoiby: Last Letter Home) and selections from the Flaherty/Ahrens musical Ragtime. Aaron Copland’s Lincoln Portrait will feature National Public Radio's Here & Now co-host Robin Young. Please join us for this thought provoking and inspirational program.
About the Brookline Symphony Orchestra
Created in the late 1950's, the Brookline Symphony Orchestra, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, thrived for many years, but went on hiatus in 2001. In 2010, a group of friends dedicated to bringing classical music to the community decided to revive the organization and make it an integral part of the Brookline community and beyond.
