Several American classics are offered in the wake of this week’s elections.  A choral work remembering the Civil War and a multi-media celebration of a groundbreaking piece of southern literature are performed tonight in Lexington.  There’s also a new musical that premiers at Georgetown College.  Rich Copley, who covers culture for the Lexington Herald Leader, spoke about it with WEKU’s Charles Compton.
