with guest actors Rosalyn Coleman Williams, Jennifer Rau, and Robert McKay

Stage Director Erica Gould 


The enduring power of liberation imagery in the early American consciousness comes to life through works by William Billings (1746 – 1800), Stephen Jenks (1772 – 1856), early spirituals and Shaker hymns performed with historical texts selected from abolitionist writings and slave narratives. The first site of the American government will set the stage for starkly beautiful American repertoire. This event honors the 150th anniversary of The Emancipation Proclamation and commemorates the 100th anniversary of the death of Harriet Tubman, called "Moses."
