“Covenant Chains”: A Folk Opera written by Jerry Prager, music by Peter Skoggard

25 May 2019, 3:00 p.m.

This workshop production describes the 1842 controversy between Anglicans and Tuscarora Baptists. The performance will be preceded by a short historical explanation. This should provide an interesting insight for most people of this area who probably are not aware of the negotiations at that time. The usual finger food and drinks will be available afterwards.Haudenosaunee elders.jpg
