Mother Ann

In 1774, Mother Ann Lee and eight followers of the United Society of Believers left England for the American colonies. Commonly known as the "Shakers" for their ecstatic movement during worship, they built communities across the east with reputations for pacifism, prayerful devotion, and high craftsmanship. Over the centuries, the Shakers in America have also gathered a catalog of beautiful, emotional music received in prayer, dreams, and visions.

For this concert, the Chorale is celebrating that rich, musical tradition alongside the 250th anniversary of the Shakers' arrival in America, all while honoring their beloved Mother Ann. Joined by composer-in-residence Kevin Siegfried and Washington Revels, come hear Shaker tunes you know and loveā€”and many that you've never heard before!
