Event Description

Exodus: Dreams of The Promised Land in Antebellum America

The Western Wind with Guest Actors
Erica Gould, Stage Director

Please join us on Saturday, March 23rd at 8:00pm for a unique interdisciplinary event in one of New York City's most historically important locations, when the esteemed Western Wind ensemble and guest actors Rosalyn Coleman and Reg E. Cathey collaborate on a program of American music and history at The Fraunces Tavern Museum Flag Gallery.

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.
