2020, 50 min

Filmmaker: Michael Sheridan
Sound: David Griesinger
Produced for: Boston Camerata

Filmed with four cameras at Boston’s Old North Church during the 2020 pandemic, this classic Camerata program of Americana is particularly appropriate to a year of struggle and hope. Even though Live performance was impossible, the production seeks to overcome the physical separation via the serene beauty of the architecture and the immediate presence of these heartfelt songs and hymns.
