The 59th Season opens with Governor Steve Bullock narrating the powerful words by and about President Lincoln in Copland’s Lincoln Portrait. This spirit of Americana is coupled with maverick Charles Ives’ Symphony No. 2, complete with gospel tunes, American songs, and barn-dancing fiddles. The season opener culminates with Beethoven’s revolutionary testament in THE groundbreaking and mighty Eroica Symphony. The evening concludes with a dessert reception in the Helena Civic Center Ballroom.
