Commemorate the Illinois Bicentennial with the Illinois Symphony Orchestra! To mark this festive occasion, we open with Joan Tower’s adventurous First Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman, paying tribute to women risk-takers. Copland’s masterful Lincoln Portrait reflects upon some of Lincoln’s greatest speeches. Concluding with the resounding Ode to Joy of Beethoven's Ninth Symphony featuring Soprano Desirée Hassler, Mezzo Soprano Elizabeth Thompson, Tenor Justin Victors, Baritone Ricardo Herrera and the Illinois State University Choirs, the finale is sure to have you on your feet.
