Plymouth 400 Instrumental Festival

Music Celebrations International is pleased to present the Plymouth 400 Instrumental Festival taking place March 28 – 29, 2020 in partnership with the official Plymouth 400 Anniversary. The instrumental festival will be part of a year-long commemoration that will highlight the cultural contributions and American traditions that began with the interaction of the Wampanoag and English peoples; a story that significantly shaped the building of America.

 

The festival will feature stand-alone performances from exceptional ensembles across America in the historic Boston Symphony Hall. Symphony Hall is home to the Boston Symphony Orchestra and is acoustically one of the top concert halls in the world.

 

In addition to performing, ensembles will have the opportunity to explore and tour this iconic region rich in the history of the colonization and beginning of America. Sightseeing opportunities include a visit to the Plimoth Plantation which features a 17th-century English Village and Wampanoag Homesite. Music Celebrations International is delighted to partner with acclaimed living history museum Plimoth Plantation to present a unique opportunity for performance groups that combines music and world-class exhibits in a national tribute to this significant moment in history.

 

Ensembles will also have the opportunity to visit Boston and follow the Freedom Trail.

 

We look forward to seeing you at the Plymouth 400 Instrumental Festival in commemoration of this significant event in America’s story!
