An annual New Year’s Eve concert in Boston will celebrate African American history.
The Handel and Haydn Society and the Museum of African American History say the sixth annual Jubilee Day Concert on Dec. 31 will include ‘‘Battle Hymn of the Republic,” “We Shall Walk in the Valley of Peace,” and selections by composers Mendelssohn, Bach, and Handel to be performed by the renowned chorus and ensemble.
The program also features poet Regie Gibson delivering readings from President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation of Jan. 1, 1863, that declared all slaves in Confederate states free.
The afternoon event takes place at Trinity Church in Copley Square and is free to the public. It’s part of Boston’s First Night festivities.
