THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED FOR 2020. A new event is scheduled for March 28, 2021. 


The Plymouth 400 National Instrumental Festival is a Celebratory Concert which will feature four outstanding orchestras and wind ensembles in a musical commemoration honoring the traditions which have shaped the building of America! Hosted by Plimoth Plantation.


The Plymouth Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Maestro Steven Karidoyanes, honors the Plymouth 400 Anniversary with a visual, vocal and orchestral and spiritual celebration!  Award-winning cellist Zlatomir Fung joins the orchestra for Dvořák’s Cello Concerto, a New World Concerto of sorts because Dvořák composed it here in America.  Choruses from Pembroke, Plymouth North, and Silver Lake Regional High Schools lend their voices to Copland’s Simple Gifts and the Promise of Living, elections that exemplify hope and gratitude.  Wampanoag leader, historian, and artist, Jonathan James-Perry stirs Native People’s ancestral heritage with First Light, a reference to the Wampanoag, or People of the Light, by Tonya Wind Singer.  The lives of early settlers come into focus through archival photos from Pilgrim Hall Museum set to musical touchstones:  Copland’s music from the film, Our Town and  Miklós Rózsa’s The Mayflower from the film score to the 1952 film Plymouth Adventure.  The Phil honors the many who have walked this place before us.
