Chester County Choral Society and 150th

The Sunday after Hopewell I attended the Chester County Choral Society's Civil War 150th Anniversary of Retrospective concert. The event featured Beck's Philadelphia Brigade Band.

















The band and Choral alternated and only played together for one piece. They played Northern and Southern pieces.

I really enjoyed the concert; they did play a few modern pieces. It was strange to hear Follow the Drinking Gourd sung in traditional choral style. There was also a piece with the Gettysburg Address set to music.


They ended with a strong rendition of the Battle Hymn of the Republic with band accompanying. I heard about this concert by chance and I'm glad I did.
