'Mild Melodious Maze’: Songs and Instrumental Music from Early America (1770-1830)
With Anne D. M. Harley, Olav Chris Henriksen, and Na’ama Lion

This musical program performed on period instruments celebrates some of the over 70,000 musical scores in the Society’s collections of American music. Come hear the heroic spirit in music from the first years of the American nation, the political songs of the Early Republic, shape note and Shaker tunes, popular hits from imported English stage shows, and the strains of the first art music composed on American soil.
