History, Herstory

Concertmaster Kit Boulding

at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater

All season long, we’ve been telling stories: children’s stories, tales of tragedy, romance, and of far away places. In History, Herstory, we feature the stories of two heroic figures – Abraham Lincoln, and Scheherazade, whose mesmerizing stories saved her life.

On the program:

Sibelius’s Spring Song – This piece will be dedicated to the memory of BSO cellist Steve Main
Copland’s Lincoln Portrait, narrated by WFIU‘s own George Walker
Stamitz’s Viola Concerto with soloist Maeve Whelan, winner of our 2017 Youth Concerto Competition
Rimsky-Korsakov’s Scheherazade, Concert Master Kit Boulding is featured on solo violin

We are very grateful to the sponsor of our Youth Concerto Competition, Hilliard Lyons.
