Meet us in The Land of Harmony, Quire Cleveland's new program of American music. Enjoy early versions of "The Star-Spangled Banner," "When Jesus Wept," and "Amazing Grace" — along with lesser known, equally inspiring, works.
Artistic Director Ross W. Duffin has chosen music to delight and entertain you — from the 1814 version of our national anthem to the "Hymn of Peace," sung by 10,000 to mark the end of the Civil War. Also featured is the music of Amy (Mrs. H. H. A.) Beach, known in her day as "the American Brahms," and Cleveland's own Patty Stair. Plus works by William Billings, Stephen Foster, R. Nathaniel Dett, and others.
Everyone is welcome. Under age 18 admitted free.
