Lenfest Center/Wilson Hall/Concert Hall

Join the University Orchestra in an evening of music about heroes. The program will include Aaron Copland's John Henry, a work about the African-American folk hero who was said to have worked as a steel-driving man in the construction of railroads and whose legend included beating a steam-powered, steel-driving machine in a race. The concert will also include Beethoven's Symphony No. 3 in E flat, Eroica, a work originally dedicated to Napoleon Bonaparte before being changed in favor of the name of a patron.

No tickets are required.
