1854 A Folk Opera

1854 is about and inspired by, the Vineyard mid-19th century abolitionist movement .  Here is the initial invitation to a presentation in 2015.

On Sunday, August 16th at 4:00 p.m. there will be a presentation regarding a developing folk opera, 1854 . This presentation is meant to give the audience an inside look into how such a piece of musical theatre is developed. A storyboard of sample scenes, plus early musical renderings of two scenes that begin 1854 will be presented. Questions are welcome. This demonstration is meant to benefit the further development of 1854. Afterwards, a free-will offering will be requested.
