The Berklee Contemporary Symphony Orchestra, conducted by artistic director Julius P. Williams, presents a concert centering on our shared humanity. Take a musical journey across national borders, culminating with Aaron Copland’s iconic Lincoln Portrait, with narrator Ron Savage, Performance Division dean, reading excerpts from some of Abraham Lincoln’s greatest speeches, including the Gettysburg Address.

Enjoy modern favorites such as “Dearly Beloved,” composed by Yoko Shimomura for the video game Kingdom Hearts; the iconic Butterfly Lovers Violin Concerto by He Zhanhao and Chen Gang, performed by Serena Harnack; enduring works such as Jean Sibelius’s Finlandia; and contemporary composer Nkeiru Okoye’s Voices Shouting Out, described by the composer as “a sparkling celebration of life.”
