Plymouth 400
Commemoration

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.

The Pilgrim Progress was instituted by the Town of Plymouth in 1921 in honor of its Pilgrim founders. The march takes place the first four Fridays in August and also is an integral part of the Town’s celebration of Thanksgiving Day.

Each marcher represents one of the 51 survivors of the first harsh winter of 1620-21.

The line of march proceeds past Plymouth Rock and up the First Street (Leyden Street today) to the top of Burial Hill where a short Pilgrim worship service is observed on the site of the original fort/meetinghouse. The passages read by Elder Brewster are usually from Governor Bradford’s “History” or other Pilgrim source.
