The Cathedral Choral Society commemorates the bicentennial of Lincoln's birth with a special concert at the National Cathedral on Sunday, March 8 at 4:00 PM. Lincoln scholar and actor Sam Waterston narrates Aaron Copland's Lincoln Portrait. The concert also features the U.S. premiere of Charles Villiers Stanford's Elegiac Ode, Julia Ward Howe's Battle Hymn of the Republic, and Paul Hindemith's choral requiem based on Walt Whitman's verse,"When Lilacs Last in the Door-yard Bloom'd". Cathedral Choral Society Music Director J. Reilly Lewis joined Deb Lamberton in the Classical WETA studios.
