A Civil War Portrait

George Mason University Center for the Arts

4400 University Drive

Fairfax, Virginia 22030

The Fairfax Symphony Orchestra and the National Broadway Chorus bring the Civil War to life in a night of music. In his 1966 classic, Lincoln and the Music of the Civil War, Kenneth A. Bernard calls the war between the states “a musical war”. This program guides the audience through the major campaigns of the Civil War through music, narration and carefully curated photographs and features music of the era, from Stephen Foster to Battle Hymn of the Republic, as well as popular Civil War era folksongs like Danny Boy and Annie Laurie.
