Early American Music at Fraunces Tavern














Exodus: Dreams of the Promised Land in Antebellum America


Please join us 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 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.


This event honors the 150th anniversary of The Emancipation Proclamation and commemorates the 100th anniversary of the death of Harriet Tubman.
