Print Center New York is pleased to present a new performance of Bethany Collins’ project America: A Hymnal, which offers a chronological retelling of American history, politics, and culture through one song. Over time, “My Country ’Tis of Thee” (also known as “America”) has seen its title and lyrics re-written at least 100 times in support of passionately held causes—from temperance and suffrage to abolition and even the Confederacy.
Fifteenth Street Monthly Meeting of The Religious Society of Friends
While in residence at Bryn Mawr College, Collins will produce a series of performances of The Battle Hymn of the Republic: A Hymnal (2023), a work included in the exhibition at the College. These performances aim to bring together community participants and audiences in sung versions of "The Battle Hymn of the Republic."
We will premiere another one of Bethany Collins' works entitled Battle Hymn, parallel to our work with her on America: A Hymnal.
