The program will serve as a joyous reminder of how lucky we are to be living in the Land of the Free. From the dawning of a new era with Strauss’ sunrise (made famous in 2001: A Space Odyssey), to the great hymn of liberty in Holst’s Jupiter, to the majesty of Kiev’s great gate dedicated to Tsar Alexander II emancipator of the serfs, to Lincoln’s magisterial words in Copland’s portrait of the former president, to the grand climax of Tchaikovsky’s beloved 1812 Overture.
