Based in Shepherdstown, WV, the Ambassadors will perform a mixture of traditional and contemporary gospel as well as African American spirituals. The program will take place at 6:00 PM on the grounds of Mather Training Center, at the former Storer College campus. Founded in 1867, Storer College grew from a one-room school for freedmen to a full-fledged degree-granting college. For 88 years, Storer provided former slaves, their children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren the education, the training, and perhaps most importantly, the sense of worth needed to be a success. In 2017, Harpers Ferry National Historical Park will celebrate the 150th Anniversary of Storer College with a year-long commemoration.
Join us for this evening of free music by bringing along a picnic, your family, and friends. In case of inclement weather, the concert will take place in the Curtis-Freewill Baptist Church, located on the grounds of the Mather Training Center, Harpers Ferry.
