We’ll Be There: American Spirituals, Black and White, 1800-1900

The 48th season opens with Boston Camerata’s performance of “We’ll Be There,” Music Before 1800’s first annual presentation specifically dedicated to American Roots. Under the passionate guidance of director, Anne Azéma, eight vocalists join with a fiddle, guitar, bass, and keyboard. From plantation songs (“My body rock long fever”) to songs of freedom (“Safe in the Promised Land”), the harrowing journey out of slavery is given a visceral account through folksongs, spirituals, and hymns.

“The [Camerata] ensemble takes you to a place of hope, redemption, and everlasting peace …. Simply beautiful.” —Der Spiegel
