I attended a very entertaining performance on Sunday afternoon at the Minnesota History Center. It was about a famous musical family with a Minnesota connection. It was created by Dan Chouinard, Jeff Raz, and Jordan Sramek.
“Singing for Freedom” is a story about the Hutchinson Family Singers. This family sang songs that advocated for the abolishment of slavery. In 1855, three of the brothers invested in land in Minnesota and founded Hutchinson, Minnesota. The Rose Ensemble, Maria Jette, T. Mychael Rambo and Dan Chouinard did a marvelous job in presenting the story and the songs that were sung in the mid-1800’s.
