Jubilee Day Concert from Handel & Haydn

Date: December 31, 2017
2:00 pm to 3:00 pm

On Jan. 1, 1863, Bostonians celebrated the first Jubilee Day, the day on which the Emancipation Proclamation was signed by President Lincoln.  As part of First Night activities, Handel + Haydn Society, in conjunction with the Museum of African American History, will present a concert inspired by that time.  Scott Allen Jarrett leads members of the H+H Chorus in joyous music, woven together by National Poetry Slam Champion Regie Gibson, giving power to the Proclamations's words.  Free and open to all.
