JUBILEE DAY CONCERT
PART OF
FIRST NIGHT FIRST DAY BOSTON

TRINITY CHURCH BOSTON
206 CLARENDON STREET

General Admission, Open Seating

A celebratory afternoon of music and storytelling on the anniversary of President Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation.
Presented in partnership with the Museum of African American History.

This year’s Jubilee Day concert program features music by Mendelssohn, Bach, and Handel as well as readings of the Emancipation Proclamation – all based on “two broader themes of ‘Hope’ and ‘Be Not Afraid,’” shares conductor Scott Allen Jarrett.

“We love partnering with the Museum of African American History and sharing the Jubilee Day Concert program with Boston audiences,” shares H+H President/CEO David Snead. “It’s the perfect way to welcome in a New Year and remind us about liberty, freedom, and equality for all.”
