Vin Scully narrates Lincoln Portrait

July 18
8:00 PM
Hollywood Bowl: West Hollywood

Event Overview

One of the quintessential elements of any proper Southern California summer soundtrack has long been the affable voice of Vin Scully deftly weaving in references to Shakespeare and postwar Brooklyn in his broadcasts of L.A. Dodgers games. Because of the ongoing limitations of the Dodgers' current television deal, most local fans couldn't see much of Scully's final seasons covering the baseball team before he retired last year, but he emerges from retirement tonight, putting his reassuring, mellifluous voice to use in his orchestral debut with the L.A. Phil as the narrator of Lincoln Portrait, composed by fellow New York native Aaron Copland. Conductor Gustavo Dudamel throws out the first pitch with Copland's Fanfare for the Common Man before guiding the orchestra through Beethoven's epic, choral-infused Ninth Symphony.
