  1. April 28 was the actual day of the 10 mile day race. This concert is Saturday evening the 27th of April. The story is an intriguing one. Details will unfold through 5 talented narrators telling the story simultaneously with the full symphony and 10 percussionists providing the sounds and feel of this amazing event!
