Join us on Saturday, July 13th at 3 PM for Ephrata Cloister Chorus’ Summer Choral Sampler! This brief but captivating performance will take place in the historic 1741 Saal (Meetinghouse) and is included with the price of admission to the site.
This special event, presented by the Ephrata Cloister Associates, offers a unique opportunity to hear original 18th-century choral compositions in the very space where they were first performed. Under the direction of Mark Herr and accompanied by Juliet Mitton, the Ephrata Cloister Chorus will present a selection of original Ephrata pieces alongside music from other early American communities. The last Expanded Site Tour of the day will be at 1:00 PM and the last regular guided tour will be at 2:00 PM to accommodate the Chorus Summer Sampler at 3:00 PM.
Seating is limited and available on a first-come, first-served basis.
