Day of Music
The sounds of history come alive as the Historic Ephrata Cloister offers its annual Day of Music. A restored organ built by the Miller Organ Company of Lebanon will be the feature of a program presented by Mark Herr when he performs on the reed organ he restored at 1:30 p.m. and 3:30 p.m.
Die Schwadore Schalle keeps the Pennsylvania Dutch language alive with a special performance of folk and religious music at 2:30 p.m. The Ephrata Cloister Chorus, under the direction of Martin Hinkley, will present three mini-concerts at 2, 3 and 4 p.m. with music from the Ephrata Cloister and other early American communities. All these programs will occur in the Saal, an impressive 5-story structure built in 1741.
Seating is limited, and concerts begin promptly, so plan to arrive early. The programs are included with regular admission to the historic site which also offers visits to the historic buildings and grounds. Admission for the site and the special programs is $10 for adults, $9 for senior citizens age 65 and over, $7 for students age -17, and $5 for children ages 3-5.
