Reception to follow performance in Lykes Atrium. All are welcome.

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.
