The concert concludes with Copland's moving musical tribute to Abraham Lincoln, his 'Lincoln Portrait' which will feature guest narrator, Zappos.com CEO Tony Hsieh. Soprano Linda Lister and tenor Mark Thomsen will also join the LV Philharmonic under the baton of the New York Philharmonic's Assistant Conductor, Case Scaglione, for this musical celebration of the American spirit.
