The Western Wind Vocal Ensemble

with actors Rosalyn Coleman Williams, Jennifer Rau, and Reg E. Cathey

Erica Gould, Script and Stage Director Jessica Gould, Program Concept and Dramaturgy

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, including selections from Solomon Northrup, Twelve Years a Slave. Fraunces Tavern, the first site of the American government, sets the stage for starkly beautiful American repertoire.

Developed last season to celebrate the 150th anniversary of The Emancipation Proclamation, Exodus returns this year for two performances, followed by a dinner at 8:30pm with the artists in the Fraunces Tavern Restaurant.
