Ephrata Cloister Chorus Spring Concert
The Ephrata Cloister Chorus offers a spring concert of historic sounds freshly revived to welcome the season at Hope United Methodist Church. A freewill offering will be collected.
The concert features selections of music composed at Ephrata during the 1700s, many not performed since that time. Members of the Historic Ephrata Cloister not only built the original town of Ephrata but also created some of the nation’s earliest music, including works composed by America’s first female composers. To provide contrast to Ephrata’s musical accomplishments, the program also includes works by other early American communities such as the Shakers, works from the New England School, and African American spirituals. Works from the Renaissance will also be included in the performance.
The Ephrata Cloister Chorus is an educational program of the Ephrata Cloister Associates, the nonprofit organization supporting the continued preservation and interpretation of the National Historic Landmark visited annually by more than 15,000 people. Singers are always welcome to join the Chorus with other volunteer opportunities also available at the museum. Volunteers such as singers, gardeners and tour guides help keep the historic site a special feature for visitors from around the world.
