Chicago Bar musicians to present Lincoln concert


SPRINGFIELD, Ill. -- Chicago judges and lawyers will serenade Abraham Lincoln on his birthday Feb. 16 in Springfield.

The Chicago Bar Association Chorus and Symphony will perform folk songs and spirituals, along with musical works and narrative readings about the 16th president and the Civil War era.

The concert will be at 7 p.m. at the Old State Capitol. Lincoln served as a state legislator in the building.

Judges, attorneys and other members of Chicago's legal community make up the chorus and orchestra. It's now in its seventh season.

Donations of $10 a person and $15 per family are suggested.

Professional actor and chorus member Kevin Bry will also present a lecture and performance comparing Lincoln's life to a Shakespearean drama at 2:30 that day.
