‘The Good Raised Up,’ a Musical Storytelling Experience at Johnson House

February 27, 2012

This Saturday March 3rd, from 1-4 PM, Johnson house will host The Good Raised Up, an inspiring musical storytelling experience.

This original work of ‘sung story’ is a collaboration between the Pennsylvania Girlchoir, the Keystone State Boychoir, Find Your Instrument!, and the Johnson House Historic Site. This dramatic composition also features the talents of two Philadelphia artists: storyteller Charlotte Blake-Alston and jazz violinist John Blake, Jr. The program recounts a fateful night when a community came together at the Johnson House to conceal escaped slaves from a search party seeking to return the ‘fugitives’ to slavery.

There will be performances beginning at 1:00, 1:45, 2:30, and 3:15 p.m. The event is free, but you must reserve a ticket to see the performance at the Johnson House. A simulcast will be aired in the neighboring Germantown Mennonite Church. You do not need a ticket for the simulcast. Additionally the afternoon will feature craft demonstrations, historic actors and more!

We hope to see you there!
