Bach’s Lunch Lecture: "Shaker Christmas Entertainments"

Becky Soules photowebBach’s Lunch Lecture: "Shaker Christmas Entertainments"

Thursday, December 5, 12:10pm - Free and open to the public

Speaker: Becky Soules

During the 200 years that Shakers lived at Canterbury Shaker Village, their Christmas traditions evolved and changed – from simple religious services in the 19th century to elaborate theatricals and musicals in the 20th century. Hear about these Christmas "Entertainments" that were written, directed, and performed by the women of the Village between the 1880s and the 1930s, in order to sustain Shaker communal life and build ties of love and union.

. . . . . . .

Much more than Bach, the Bach's Lunch series explores a range of musical topics and genres in informal, free, lunch-hour lectures and concerts the first and second Thursdays of each month, November through June.

Bach's Lunch lectures and concerts are held in the Recital Hall, 23 Wall Street, downtown Concord; they begin at 12:10 and conclude by 12:50 p.m. Bring your lunch - and your friends!

The Bach’s Lunch Series is sponsored by The Timothy and Abigail B. Walker Lecture Fund. For more information, call 603-228-1196.
