A Second of July Celebration (Concert Series)
Friday, July 02, 2021, 6:30 PM until 7:30 PM
Public Event of Interest
John Adams predicted that “the Second Day of July 1776, will be the most memorable Epocha, in the History of America. I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated, by succeeding Generations, as the great anniversary Festival.” The second of July is the day the Continental Congress adopted Richard Henry Lee’s resolution “that these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, free and independent States . . . and that all political connection between them and the State of Great Britain is, and ought to be, totally dissolved.” Celebrate the Second of July with music of the founding era. David and Ginger Hildebrand of the Colonial Music Institute perform eighteenth-century songs—including ballads, marches, and songs from the War of 1812—in costume with period instruments. Information to access the concert will be posted in June. Presented by the Society of the Cincinnati.
