Join musicians Chris Moore, Mark Wingate and Charlotte Avant for a free musical performance as part of the 2014 Lincoln Center Education Educator Workshops.
Beginning in the 1780s and continuing to the present day, the Shakers composed an estimated eight to ten thousand songs in 19 communities from Maine to Kentucky. Hundreds of these tunes are still sung at the one remaining active Shaker community in Sabbathday Lake, Maine. With the exception of the song “Simple Gifts”, this vast repertoire is virtually unknown to contemporary singers and audiences.
This program is free to the public. Seating will be first come, first served.
