For the Inauguration: Trump Portrait



This evening Gianandrea Noseda conducts the National Symphony Orchestra in an all-American program. Naturally, one of the works on the program is Aaron Copland's Lincoln Portrait. In light of the event of the following day, we wonder if Noseda and his musicians could be convinced to switch the narration used in the performance. It might sound something like this:


Trump Portrait (with apologies to Abraham Lincoln and Aaron Copland)
Narration by Charles T. Downey, musical assistance from the London Symphony Orchestra
