Larry Hazlett, a distinguished professor emeritus from the UW Department of Theatre and Dance, will narrate Aaron Copland's "Lincoln Portrait."
In addition to the musical celebrations, the UW Wind Symphony will recognize its outstanding members playing their final performance with the ensemble: trumpeter Tim Baird, flutist Katrina Harr and saxophonist Andy Peeks.
