In 1976, Lady Bird performed with the Winnipeg Symphony in Grand Forks, ND. She recited four passages: excerpts from the Dec of Independence, narrative from Copeland’s A Lincoln Portrait and William Schuman’s New England Tripytch, and parts of LBJ’s Great Society speech. She also performed twice more in Winnipeg.
President Ford awarded Lady Bird the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1977.
And just for fun – a picture of Lady Bird in a barnstorming plane.
