February 15th, 2012 No Comments »

The Marcus Shelby Quartet, featuring vocalist Faye Carol, will present a musical tribute to freedom fighter, Civil War hero, and Women’s Suffrage champion Harriet Tubman at the Bayview Opera House on Sunday, February 26 at 3 p.m. (lunch available at 1:30 p.m.).

This one-time performance is co-sponsored by Bayview Opera House, Inc. and Heritage  in celebration of Black History Month. Marcus Shelby has extensively researched and developed music that pays homage to Harriet Tubman, inspired in part by her profound use of music to free herself and countless other slaves.

This special tribute concert will include commentary and narrative about the life and history of Harriet Tubman and is appropriate for all ages. Tickets are $15 for adults ($20 at the door), $10 for seniors (65+), $5 for young adults 18 years and younger, and free for children six and under.
