Pilgrim Festival Chorus

Pilgrim Festival Chorus, the region’s principal not-for-profit community choral ensemble, presents two special commemorative concerts honoring Plymouth’s quadricentennial celebration.  In this performance, singers and instrumentalists mark the 400th anniversary of the landing of the Mayflower in Plymouth. Initially scheduled for October 2020, this concert is presented through the lens of the faith and courage of the Mayflower’s passengers as they emigrated across the sea to the new world.  The program features the premiere of a specially commissioned work by Massachusetts composer Clifton J. Noble Jr., “Arrived in Good Harbor”.  Noble worked closely with PFC’s directors to create a work that incorporates texts written by William Bradford (1590-1657), noted Governor of the Plymouth Colony and a signatory of the Mayflower Compact.

Also on the program, is a work by American composer Alice Parker, who is herself a national treasure, having promoted America’s musical heritage over a career that spans decades. “Melodious Accord”, Parker’s masterful setting of 18th and early 19th century hymns in the shape-note tradition, is particularly suitable for this program, as it reflects the strong faith of the Pilgrims.   PFC’s performance of this work is the region’s first in many years.
