Join the Choir School of Delaware and Bel Canto Youth Chorus in Easton, PA for a performance exploring the history of the Underground Railroad through song. This is a stop on the “Stand Up Tour,” which follows Harriet Tubman’s route on the Underground Railroad.
This concert is free and open to the public. Advance registration is requested.
The Stand Up: Harriet Tubman Tour commemorates the 200th anniversary of Harriet Tubman’s birth. Starting in Washington DC, the combined chorus will follow the path of the Underground Railroad through Cambridge, MD; Wilmington, DE; Philadelphia, PA; and complete their journey in Easton, PA.
In addition to performing at three venues, tour participants will learn from local historians and visit sites that played a role in the Underground Railroad and Harriet Tubman’s journey to freedom. They will connect songs to physical landmarks and engage in dialogue about Harriet Tubman’s legacy and its continued impact, connecting the past and present through music. Educational tour stops will include the National Museum of African American History & Culture in Washington DC, the Harriet Tubman Museum and Mural in Cambridge, MD, and the Harriet Tubman Underground Railroad National Park.
This tour will be a powerful opportunity to educate, collaborate, and affect lasting change through music and the arts.
