Ring in the holidays with our annual performance of early American music from Appalachia and New England. Powerful, rousing shapenote tunes and lively Shaker songs bring the cheer of Christmas to life. These uniquely American music traditions are part of a vibrant cultural heritage, passed down through oral traditions, singing schools, and community practice. Shaker and shapenote music beautifully showcase the simple power of communal singing – in fact, the most common shapenote book, The Sacred Harp, is named after that sacred musical instrument given to us at birth: the human voice. Join Radiance for this festive, joyful celebration!
