Heartland focuses on the unique aspects of the Midwest including songs of trains, rivers, the prairies and the lives of Abraham Lincoln and Carl Sandburg and presents songs that introduce Illinois from the first explorers and immigrants up to our present day farmers and Great Lakes sailors. The audience can sing along, assisted by slides of the chorus parts while a travelogue of slides and historical photos grace the verses.
